August 26, 2019

We cordially invite you to participate in the 2019 Delta Fair Parade.  The parade will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 24.  Line-up will begin at 4:30 p.m. We encourage organizations, commercial firms, civic groups, churches, school groups etc. to enter floats in the parade.   To enter the parade complete this Online Registration Form.

Float cash prizes: 1st place $1000, 2nd place $600, 3rd place $450, 4th place $350 and 5th place $250.  Floats will be judged by an independent party separate from the Delta Fair Board and Kennett Chamber.  Float judges will be staged at various locations along the parade route.  Parade entries should not stop at any point along the route.

School Band Buses: follow North Bypass/Homecrest until you reach the intersection at North St.  Turn left onto North St. then right onto Walter St. to drop off students at the KHS Gymnasium.  Band students can depart buses in the gym parking lot and walk to the grassy area in front of the High School.  Band buses should also exit using Walter St. and then North Bypass to go to the end of the parade route.  Buses have permission to park at SEMO University if they wish.  Instructors and Drivers: please coordinate pick up location with your students.  Each band that participates in the parade will be admitted to the Delta Fair that night at no charge.  We ask that bands do not perform routines that slow the progress of the parade.  Bands will not be judged. Bands are asked to continue play through the entire route.

Safety Information: Entries with multiple walkers/riders, please assemble your group (especially those including children) at an alternate location and come to the staging area as one unit to avoid congestion in the crowded areas.  Individual drop offs will not be permitted.  We ask parade participants to throw candy carefully toward the ground and not into the crowd.  We also ask that anyone in the crowd not run into the street to retrieve the candy thrown.  

Pageant winner entries:  Delta Fair Pageant Royalty will ride on a float sponsored by the Delta Fair Board.  This float will not be eligible to win prize money.  Participants on the float will be limited to Queens only ages 5 years and older, no alternates.  Other pageant queens should register for the parade individually and will abide by the same rules as the Delta Fair Pageant: queens only ages 5 years and older.  

Entries depicting violence, horror attractions or deemed inappropriate by parade staff will not be permitted.  Parade officials will be granted final discretion and may eliminate entries leading up to parade start. If you have questions about your entry's qualifications, please contact Kennett Chamber of Commerce.

Parade entries should be entered with the Kennett Chamber of Commerce no later than 12 p.m. on Friday, September 20. Non-registered entries will not be allowed on parade day.  Parade line-up information will be available from the Chamber office beginning Monday, September 23 at 10 a.m.  To register, complete the Online Registration Form The Chamber can be contacted by email or phone at (573) 888-5828.
