Autumn on Parade

October 7, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

Everyone loves Autumn on Parade.

OCT. 7-8, 2023
The ever-popular Autumn on Parade Festival is held the first weekend of October and is a volunteer-based organization. In 1970, the first Autumn parade festival opened with seven booths lined up on Third Street on a rainy day. Fifty-three years later, it has grown into an average of 180 booths surrounding the courthouse square.

Other fan-worthy annual events include the Harvest Time Parade and the Auto Classic–to name just a couple.

Spending the weekend?

Word to the wise: make your lodging reservations sooner rather than later!
