After taking a year off due to the pandemic, the Harvest of Harmony Parade returns on Saturday, October 2, with the parade theme “We are all superheroes!” “
The parade will be led by three Grand Marshals – Teresa Anderson of the Central District Health Department, Beth Bartlett of CHI Health St. Francis and Jon Rosenlund of the Hall County / City of Grand Island Emergency Management.
The announcement was made by the Grand Island Area Chamber of Commerce and the Harvest of Harmony Committee, chaired by Michael Porter. The 79th Annual Harvest of Harmony Parade will be sponsored by Tom Dinsdale Automotive.
“After making the decision to cancel the 2020 parade, the Harvest of Harmony committee worked hard this year to develop a theme that represents how Grand Island and other Nebraska communities came together to overcome COVID-19,” according to the press release.
The parade will start at 8:15 am on Fourth Street and Elm Street, continue through the Eddy Street underpass, and then continue on to Third Street. The route will be 0.6 mile.
Local communities, businesses, clubs, service organizations and individuals are invited to participate in the parade by entering a float decorated in connection with the theme of the parade. There are three types of tanks in the Harvest of Harmony parade: marching units, single vehicle tanks, and towed decorated tanks.
