Dog days of summer arrive for Osage City fair parade

Color guard made up of members of the Osage County American Legion Council leads the 2014 Osage County Fair parade.

The fair is coming! And that means it is almost parade time. With the theme of “Dog Days of Summer”, this year’s Osage County Fair parade will begin at 7 p.m. June 25, and will run from west to east on Market Street in Osage City.

As organizers of the parade, the Osage City Chamber of Commerce is inviting all families, businesses, churches, groups of friends, or other organizations to enter the parade.

“Let’s make it great this year and everyone get involved,” said parade organizer and Chamber vice president Chandra Dunbar. “I would love to see several of our local businesses participating in the parade this year. Join us for a good old fashioned county fair parade!”

Dunbar said a new feature of the parade this year will be a “kiddie parade” prior to the fair parade. In keeping with the theme of the parade, kids are invited to walk their dogs. She promises more details soon.

The fair parade will start at Second and Market streets and end at Seventh and Market. For floats, staging begins at 5:45 p.m. at Flint Hills Beverage on west Market Street. Judging will be at 6:15 p.m., and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.

Bands, walking and all other entries will be staged at 6:15 p.m. in the Pizza Hut parking lot and along Second Street.
