IBEW NECA Grand Parade

May 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Changes in Lineup Locations!!!

Due to construction on the Junior High field and asphalt parking lot, Festa has had to change how we stage for the parade this year.

As usual, honorees and premier sponsors are on the 100 Block of East Stotlar.  The HerrinFesta Named Sponsors will line up first on the 100 Block of Ash street.  The Parade Marshals will be lined up on the 200 block of East Ford St and 200 Block of East Ash Street to let you in and line you up according to when you show up.

The Parade Marshals will also release each area as they have in the past.  Please see the picture on this page.  The yellow lines depict the staging area.

We would like to thank the Herrin American Legion Lodge for always helping Festa!  We thank them for their service to our country and their continued service to our community!

Line-up begins at 10:00 am.

1.  NO CONFETTI CANNONS!  We must be good neighbors to the city and residences around the parade route and cannot clean it up properly.  Please don’t use them.
2.  Please hand out, instead of throwing any hard items.
3.  If you are throwing items, please have people walking with your float to ensure people don’t run under your vehicle to get items.
4.  For your participants safety, please don’t have people jumping on and off your vehicles.
5.  Do not invite people to come up to your float to receive an item.
For commercial businesses: It would be very generous to make a $25.00 donation to the Herrin Community Pantry for your parade entry.  Thank you.  Please mail those donations to Herrin Community Pantry 509 N 17th St Herrin, IL 62948
