A tradition that begun in 1936 will continue this Sunday, June 29, at the Old Settlers celebration when decorated cars, trucks, floats, horses and people will assemble at 13th and Walnut streets in North Bend to take part in the Old Settlers parade.

Advance registration is ecouraged but parade entries can register on Sunday, according to Chamber of Commerce parade chairman Pamela Griffin.

Registration will begin at 12:30 p.m. on June 29 at the high school parking lot for all those partipating in the parade. Bands will assemble on Walnut Street, horses on 14th Street and fire trucks on 13th Street, all in the block adjacent to Walnut Street. There must be someone there that can move the entry during the wait from registration to lineup. The vehicle or trailer cannot be left unattended.

Different types of entries are accepted, with businesses and organizations being judged for prizes from the Chamber of Commerce. Those desiring to be judged must register and be at the assembly site at the high school by 1:30 p.m.

Griffin said that any entry needing to go through early because of a commitment to another parade entry should contact her ahead of time.
The parade will start promptly at 2 p.m and head down Walnut to 9th Street where it will turn east, going six blocks to Locust Street then head north to 13th Street where the parade will end.

For information and guidelines, Griffin can be contacted at 402-652-3242 or
