TRF Parade

Parade Participation

Saturday, July 12, 2014 from 9:45am – 12 p.m.
Parade Theme: Reflecting On Our Rivers

Each year, more than 50,000 people line the streets of downtown Fort Wayne for the Three Rivers Festival Parade to see the floats, hear the bands and to celebrate the kickoff to Fort Wayne’s Biggest Summer Celebration since 1969. Come out and see the many colorful parade floats, balloons, and bands Fort Wayne has to offer. The family friendly environment the Three Rivers Festival brings is perfect for kids, teens, and adults! Sit along the 2 mile stretch of the parade route beginning on Van Buren by St. Joeseph Hospital and ending along Caloun Street. The parade starts at 9:45 a.m.; get there early to secure a great viewing spot to see the floats and the best of the Lutheran Health Network Parade! Trophies awarded in six categories for commercial and non-commercial entrants. There is a two-hour Live Television Broadcast of the Three Rivers Festival Parade which repeats later in the week.
