Everyone living in Snohomish is invited to the 38th Annual Easter Parade on Saturday, March 31st. The parade will begin at 11 a.m. and will travel through downtown Snohomish real estate on First Street. The Chamber of Commerce is hosting an Easter Bonnet Contest. Put your creativity to work and make a prize-worthy bonnet. Anyone who comes to the parade wearing a bonnet may ride on the Chamber’s float. There is no age limit. Pets sporting bonnets are welcome, too. Get on the float by 10:45 a.m. at Cedar and First Street. Parents may ride with their children or just meet the float at the parade’s end, First Street and Avenue E. The parade is expected to end around 1 p.m.
The deadline for groups and businesses to enter the parade is March 21st, so there’s still time to get your entry form in. Commercial entries (those displaying a business name) will pay an entrance fee: $25 for Chamber members or $35 for non-members. Entries can have up to five vehicles. The parade is a great way to advertise your business to Snohomish real estate owners. You’re welcome to pass out flyers and candy, but items must be handed to parade watchers rather than thrown. Decorate a car or truck and come out for a great time. Parade line up will run from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. Sign-in will be at First Street and Lincoln Avenue, and all participants will receive their parade number and line up spot at that time.
Snohomish is one of the few communities in the area to have an Easter parade, so this is a great time for everyone to get together and have fun. The parade attracts people from the surrounding area, so businesses can easily and inexpensively advertise to a lot of potential customers.
