Guilford Fair Parade
September 16, 2017
The Guilford Rotary Club would like to extend you an invitation to participate in the 2017 Guilford Fair Parade as either a member of a marching unit or as a spectator. The parade will step off at 10:00 a.m. on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th!

The theme this year is "Commit to be Fit" with a focus on sports and how Guilford citizens improve their health.

John Saville will serve as the Grand Marshal, as he is invested in improving the health of himself and others. John exemplifies the importance of healthy eating and exercise. As the CEO and President of John Saville Entertainment Company, Inc. and the on-air personality at WWYZ Country 92.5 FM in Hartford, Cadillac Saville is well-known in our community and state. John Saville is also known and appreciated for his generous involvement in many community service projects that benefit Guilford citizens of all ages.

To apply to participate in the parade, please complete and submit the Application, including the release form, ASAP, but no later than September 1, 2017. Click on "Application" above to complete the registration information. If your unit includes a motorized vehicle, a Certificate of Insurance must also be provided by September 1, 2017. For details, please see #6 in FAQ.

If you are a musical unit, please refer to #5 in FAQ for details.

A separate page is provided on the website with FLOAT INFORMATION for groups that are entering a float. If you represent one of the Guilford Public Schools, please note that the rules for floats are attached, so you can begin planning for your float before the school year ends. A stipend of $125 will be provided for each Guilford Public School that enters a decorated float.

We request marchers be in the Line of March by 9:00 a.m., which can be located by pairing the number your group is e-mailed the week of the parade with the number that can be found on Whitfield Street (or a nearby side street) the morning of the parade. Marshals in red vests will be on hand beginning at 8:00 a.m. to help you find your spot.

For any questions, please refer to our FAQ. Thanks! We look forward to seeing you at the parade!
