First (Baptist) Marion will host a hot chocolate stand after the parade in their parking lot.
Due to continued COVID-19 concerns, we will not have any post-parade activities as originally planned. All attendees and parade participants are asked to practice social distancing as much as possible. Face masks are suggested as well. We appreciate your cooperation.
This year's parade route was changed due to ArDOT's anticipated construction work on our usual Military Road route. The state didn't get started yet, but our Hwy. 77 route will be followed.
Line-up starts at the Marion United Methodist Church parking lot and will proceed to First (Baptist) Marion where hot chocolate will be served after the parade.
There are multiple businesses with parking lots along the route, as well as the Brunetti Park area.
Please be respectful and courteous when parking in these lots - don't park on their grass or tamper with their buildings or company vehicles. Also, DO NOT LEAVE TRASH on their property. There will be added security from the Marion Police Dept. but it is up to each individual to be sure that no one in your group harms or inconveniences our local businesses in any way. And as always, please keep a close watch on your children!
Thank you to everyone who is working to make this parade happen. We hope that it helps to remind each of us how important our community is and how fortunate we are to have each other. Stay healthy!
