This year’s fair parade at Overbrook will celebrate “Hometown Volunteers” and feature former longtime police chief Ed Harmison as the parade’s grand marshal. The parade begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, 2016, with float lineup on Market Street, west of Maple Street, by 5:30 p.m.

The parade will again host a battle of high school bands, with generous prize money offered the top five bands; first place winner gets $1,500. Band buses and vehicles should park south of Overbrook Thriftway and bands line up near the elevators.

The parade will also offer cash prizes for the top three floats in three categories: Most realistic, true to theme, and most humorous or comical. First place wins $200, second place $125, and $75 for third. In the 4-H float category, prizes are offered for the top two floats, $125 for first place and $75 for second place.

Children are also invited to be part of the parade, and will follow the color guard. Children should gather at the Overbrook Clinic parking lot no later than 6 p.m. Saturday.
