Winterville Marigold Festival Parade
The Winterville Marigold Festival is seeking participants for its parade to be held at 10 a.m. on May 15. This family-friendly event welcomes anything from floats to horses, antique vehicles, tractors and walking groups. Businesses, civic and church organizations, schools, families, individuals and music/talent groups are encouraged to participate. The parade’s theme for this year is, “Marigolds, Music & Memories,” and the use of marigolds by those planning to participate in the parade is encouraged. Entry is free and prizes will be awarded to those with the most creative floats in relation to the parade’s theme. Entries must be submitted by May 11 to participate. For an entry form, please visit www.MarigoldFestival.com. Winterville is about 15 minutes east of Athens. Last year’s festival featured an exhibition of sculptures by Doug Makemson cosponsored by GMOA.
