Camp Verde opens registration for Fort Verde Days Parade @ Main Street
Sep 29 @ 9:06 pm

Camp Verde Parks & Recreation has opened registration for the 65th annual Fort Verde Days Parade on October 9. The parade will feature long time community members Dick and Brenda Hauser as the Grand Marshals for the parade and the parade theme this year will be “Desert Life”, a celebration of living here in the Verde Valley. Parade float ideas might include the plants and animals of the Verde Valley as well as examples of how you or your ancestors lived here in the valley. Highlighting the unique aspects of life in the high desert with a river oasis through it is another possibility. These examples may be historical, current or even a future prediction of this life. Categories for the parade award entries include Individual, Community Group and Business as well as People’s Choice.

The parade kicks off at 10 am from behind the Basha’s Supermarket on Finnie Flat Rd. and continues up the hill onto Main Street passing through the center of Town and then out onto General Crook Trail to finish. At just over 1 mile and a small incline up to Main Street the parade is not too stressful for most. Parade entry applications including more float judging criteria are available at visitcampverde.com or at the P&R office at 395 S. Main Street. There is a $10 entry fee for parade entrants. Volunteers are needed to help organize the parade participants on Saturday morning so if you are interested, please email [email protected]  .

Yavapai College and Larry Green Chevrolet are Platinum level sponsors of this year’s event. SRP continues as a Gold level sponsor for the event to help provide quality free community events in Camp Verde. Camp Verde ACE Hardware and Allegra Printing of Cottonwood are supporting sponsors. Other sponsorship opportunities are still available for this event.

Contact Camp Verde Parks & Recreation at 395 S. Main St., [email protected] , (928)554-0820 Option 3 or visitcampverde.com/events for more information or vendor and parade applications.
