The Grand Island Chamber of Commerce has announced the theme for the 78th annual Harvest of Harmony Parade, sponsored by Tom Dinsdale Automotive, on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The 2019 Harvest of Harmony Parade theme is “Building Dreams, Friendships, and Memories!”
In a press release, the chamber said its parade committee worked hard to develop a theme that represents Grand Island and the current development taking place in the community.
The chamber’s Harvest of Harmony Parade will begin at 8:15 a.m. on Third Street in downtown Grand Island. Area communities, businesses, clubs, service organizations, and individuals are invited to participate in the parade by entering a decorated float relating to the parade theme.
There are three types of floats in the Harvest of Harmony Parade: walking units, single vehicle and towed decorated floats. A $50 entry fee applies to all competing and non-competing entries. Entry forms can be found on the chamber website at www.gichamber.com/harvestofharmony.
Judged categories are civic, school, children, and business. Cash prizes, trophies and ribbons are awarded. Two additional awards to be presented are the Grand Marshal’s Choice and Spirit Award. Float judging will take place the evening of Friday, Oct. 4, at Fonner Park. Non-judged categories are civic non-competitive and business non-competitive.
