The Bobcaygeon Agricultural Society is pleased to announce that this year's parade will be a unique take on a classic event. Due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, the traditional parade will now be a reverse parade!
Instead of the parade making its way through town to the fairgrounds, residents will tour the town/country side in their own vehicles to take in floats and displays. Anyone interested in creating a display or decorating their homes or storefronts can register through our online form. Forms need to be completed by August 31st.
On Saturday October 3rd, between 11am - 4pm, residents are invited to tour around town and take in all the wonderful displays our community has created. We encourage residents to drive by and view all of the entries. We will be publishing a virtual parade map for people to know the locations of all entries.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st $200.00, 2nd $150.00, and 3rd $100.00.
These prizes will be gift cards from various local businesses.
Remember that health and safety is still our main priority so everyone is encouraged to please continue to follow public health orders including proper physical distancing and adhering to social gathering restrictions.
Float/display can be a decorated store front, home and/or decorated vehicle that the public can view while driving by on Saturday October 3rd between 11:00AM- 4:00PM. Displays must be in place by September 21st.
If the floats are parked on the street they must be parked legally and not obstruct traffic.
Physical distancing is still in effect.
This is a drive-by event, therefore pedestrian traffic is discouraged.
