We are excited to announce the theme for the annual parade, scheduled for Wednesday, August 4, 2021: Cochranton Memories!!
YOU are invited to participate in the annual Cochranton Community Fair Parade!!
Date: Wednesday, August 5, 2020
Location: the streets of Cochranton
Theme: Cochranton Memories
Whether you want to be IN the parade OR WATCH the parade OR VOLUNTEER TO HELP with the parade, we have a space for you! We are not permitting the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 to dampen our spirits. WE LOVE A PARADE!!
We consider our little town's parade night to be a party for thousands and to be the largest evening parade in our neck of the woods, maybe even along the eastern seaboard! (To date, no one has disputed our claims to fame, so we're sticking with them!)
We invite you to join us for a fun time, something we're all looking forward to, especially right now with stay-at-home orders all over the country. Make plans. Please don't let the virus situation smother your plans. Remember, there is always Plan B. Sometimes we need to go to Plans C, D, and clear to Z, but we are proud of our American Spirit!! We shall parade til the cows come home!
Our Letter of Invitation and Parade Policy Brochure are available here: Parade Details. Our Application to Participate and Horse/Animal Application to Participate are located here: Applications Page. We will be sending out invitation/application paperwork via email in the coming days to recent participants -- and paper invitations via USPS after the stay-at-home orders are lifted. You don't have to wait to hear from us, though! The paperwork is now live and available here on our website!
If you would like to volunteer and make this one of the Greatest Parades Ever, please click here!
Like everything in this life (well, almost everything), parades cost money, so, please click here if you would like to donate financially too.
If you aren't able to march down the street with us, volunteer to help us, there is one more very essential job that may fit you perfectly: Spectator!! Make sure you have your lawn chairs ready for Wednesday, August 5, 2020!!
Let's show the world what we're made of here in Northwest Pennsylvania!!
The 2020 Cochranton Community Fair Parade theme is:
Put on your thinking caps!
Whether you enter a float in competition, march with a band, drive a cool car, this year's theme should provide oodles of fun for all!
Take a look back at our history. Look at your history with our community. We are making history every day!
We are not in a panic, by the way, over the world pandemic. We fully recognize the serious nature of the COVID-19 virus and encourage everyone to abide by the safety measures put forth by the CDC and PA Department of Health.
We are going to be sending out traditional paper invitation letters to those on our mailing list once the stay-at-home order is lifted in our state - BUT, if we have your email address on hand, we will start sending out invitations via email in the next few days! (If you would like to receive your information via email, please send us your contact information on the form under the General Queries tab.)
That said, we are planning to have a parade and get back to living this summer -- and sincerely hope that you are too!
Let's make more "Cochranton Memories"!!
