Everyone loves a parade and the Scotts Bluff County Fair Parade hopes to be back in a big way during this year’s annual Scotts Bluff County Fair.
The parade will be held on July 31, 10:30 a.m. The Mitchell Chamber of Commerce has already been planning for the event.
Activities on Saturday will start with a pancake breakfast held before the parade in the city parking lot in downtown Mitchell, organizer Shane Reinpold said.
Spring Creek Church does all the cooking. pancakes, sausage and eggs. Cost is $5 a plate.
It’s hoped that the Scotts Bluff County Fair parade will also enjoy its usual fan favorite floats, as well as many more.
“We usually have 70 to 80 different floats, vehicles or groups that come through the parade,” he said. “We already have people registering for the parade. To keep it going each year is a lot of work. We have a good group of people here in Mitchell who help us out a lot.”
The Mitchell High School band will also perform during the parade. Other schools are also welcome, with Reinpold encouraging all schools within the county to join in, but with the event before the start of the school year, some schools are unable to participate.
Cash prizes will be available for winning float entries.
“We still enjoy it and have a lot of fun,” Reinpold said of the parade.
People can sign up for the parade by visiting the mitchellareachamber.com website and sign up under events. A form is available on the website or people can also call Reinpold, 308-641-1692.
