The 2017 Todd Liberty Parade will take place Tuesday, July 4, at 11:00 a.m. It meanders through downtown Todd ending at Cook Park with live music by the King Bees, dancing and food to purchase. You’ve got to see it to believe it! Please join us.
After 11 years, Elkland Art Center is passing the reins for parade implementation to the Todd Community Preservation Organization. The TCPO is excited to be hosting this great event that honors the founding of our country in such a unique and fun way. You are invited to don a costume and walk in the parade or watch from the sidelines and cheer it on.
The theme for the 2017 Todd Liberty Parade is “Let’s Peace it Together”. You are sure to see many peace signs at the event to remind all of us the importance of peace throughout our country and the world.
If you would like to walk in the parade, please be at the big field at the corner of Hwy 194 and Todd Railroad Grade Road at 10:00 a.m. to pick out a costume or banner. All are welcome to join. The costumes and decorations are hand-made and free for all to use during the parade. Below are some of the larger than life-sized puppets that have appeared in past parades – the Bear, the West Wind and the Water Goddess.
Donations are critical to the future of the parade and there is a special fundraiser set up specifically for the parade. All funds raised will be used to offset expenses and sustain the parade for years to come. Please visit www.crowdrise.com to support the Todd Liberty Parade and thank you for your generosity.
A donation of $5 for parking would be most appreciated. In case of rain, please check back here for updates. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer for the parade.
