Want to show off your school spirit or advertise your business or maybe just have lots of fun getting together? Come be in the parade. Just contact us and tell us your idea and fill out the form.
We are asking that our farmers put there creativity in action. Parade floats such as this one could be a great way to show off your farm and at the end we will have an area for your produce to be front and center. After all, what's a Harvest Festival with a Harvest? Our farmers are also invited to sell their produce in the Country Store.
The Ridge Spring Harvest Festival parade is the kick off of the days festivities and a great way to show community support is to be in the parade. It doesn't take much, just decorate a truck or a golf cart or maybe a tractor pulling a trailer. We would love to see your creativity shine.
The Parade start time is 11:00am. We would like everyone participating to be at the staging area at 8:30am. The staging area is at the old Ridge Spring-Monetta Elementary.
We have a new form we would like you to fill out and sent in by October 2. If you have questions please go to the Contact us page and send us an email. We will get back to you ASAP.
