The Fishers Freedom Festival’s Children’s Parade sponsored by Primrose School is a great opportunity for children to dress up and decorate their bikes, tricycles, wagons or strollers in a patriotic manner and be rewarded for their artistic ability and creativity in celebration of our nation’s freedom.

The parade will be organized into three categories beginning with bicycles, next will be tricycles/Big Wheels and ending with strollers and wagons.  Motorized cycles or scooters are not permitted in the parade. 

Trophies for first and second place will be awarded for the “best decorated” in each of the three parade categories.  The winners will receive their trophies at the conclusion of the parade.  Each child will receive a goodie bag at the finish line for their participation in the parade.childrens-parade-airplane

Approximately 350 children participated in last year’s parade while hundreds of family and friends cheered them on.  Parents are welcome to participate with their child in the parade to promote fun for the entire family.

Children need to be dropped off at Sunblest Boulevard on the east side of Holland Park at Ellipse Parkway.  They must walk to the starting point at Holland Drive and Ellipse Parkway.  Please do not drop your children off at Ellipse Parkway and Holland Drive.   Children can be picked up on the grassy area just south of the intersection.  Please do not block the intersection with your vehicles for you and your child’s safety.
