The Annandale Parade
The popular Annandale Parade will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2012 beginning at 10:00 am. Marching along Columbia Pike from the historic white church near Gallows Road all the way to the Bowling Alley-Safeway, thousands of participants from Clowns, Storybook Characters, and Marching Bands to Antique & Military Cars, Fire Trucks, Civic Organizations, Scouts, and beautifully costumed International Dancers will parade before the residents of Greater Annandale. Sponsored by the Annandale Chamber of Commerce, this sixty-two year old tradition only gets bigger and better every year.
The Parade's Grand Marshal, Mr. Roy Eppard will, after the police and fire escorts, lead the parade over to the festival grounds in the Safeway Parking Lot on Little River Turnpike. Judges will vote on the best music/dance group, best costume, and best float. The most popular announcer in the Parade's history, Bob Reuss, will be back again to provide his enthusiastic colour commentary on the procession.
Children in the community are invited to watch the parade in their Halloween costumes and to collect the frequent gifts of candy that the marching groups hand-out. Looking for a day of family fun? Start at the parade and then stroll over to the Fall Festival for food entertainment, shopping, and games.
If your organization wishes to participate, entry forms must be received in the Chamber office by October 8, 2012 and are available at www.annandalechamber.com under Our Events.
