The City of Marion is bringing a parade back to Uptown Marion for the first time in four years. It will take place on Saturday, Sept. 9, at 10 a.m. as part of a full slate of “Fall Into Marion” events happening through September.
The theme of the parade celebrates all things fall. Both Marion and Linn-Mar High School marching bands plan to participate, along with a variety of nonprofits and area businesses. Floats are encouraged and prizes will be awarded in a number of categories. Special thanks to Farmers State Bank for their sponsorship support.
To sign up to participate, please visit www.cityofmarion.org/fallintomarion
and register online through the RecDesk portal. Registration is $45, but nonprofits are not required to pay a fee. The parade is limited to 125 entries and the deadline to register is Friday, Sept. 1, 2023. Registrations will not be accepted the day of the parade.
