Information, Route & More!
Parade Staging: Begins at 8:30 a.m. on Oaklawn Lane (see attached map). Please note that the staging area takes place on a residential street and can become narrow. Stakes will denote space in the parade. We will have volunteers directing you to the staging area.
We encourage folks to take advantage of the shuttle to the parade staging area. Please note: We’ve added a shuttle just for parade participants and vendors. This will pick-up from the Mound Parking Garage near True Value (see attached map). Roads will close promptly at 9:30 am (with parade beginning at 10 a.m.). Parade ends at Auditor’s Road and Shoreline Drive.
If you are no longer able to participate, please let us know ASAP. We do have additional spots available if you know of any local businesses or organizations that may be interested.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Join us after the parade for continued festivities, including food vendors, entertainment, wake surf competition, various vendors and businesses, and a beach bar.
The Spirit of the Lakes Festival is a non-profit run solely by volunteers. We always appreciate support and assistance. If you are interested in volunteering in the future, please let us know.
