ABOUT THE PARADE!

PARADE THEME

Get ready to paint the town with your bright colors at the Essex Fun Fest Parade! This year, our theme is "Harmony in Colours," celebrating the grand reopening of our downtown.

Join us as we transform the streets into a colorful showcase, where each parade entry proudly displays its unique colors.

 

Whether it's the bold orange of Essex 73's or the radiant yellow of Essex Home Hardware, let's highlight the vibrancy of our community while promoting our businesses in the most colorful way possible!

Don't miss your chance to be part of this bright parade!

THINGS TO KNOW

During the parade, walkers are welcome to hand out wrapped treats. We discourage the throwing of items as it may entice children to run out among the moving vehicles to retrieve them. This is also a perfect opportunity to hand out flyers, coupons and promotional items to hundreds of people.

 

Safety is the festival’s number 1 priority. Volunteers and the OPP will assist with road closures and traffic flow.
