Parade marches into Petaluma

April 3, 2014 by  

The annual ‘Butter and Egg Days’ parade and festival is coming to Petaluma. The event is designed for the community to appreciate all the plants and other products that are ‘homegrown’ in the area.

This free family event will begin with several contests, including a cow chip toss. Then, before the parade begins, there will be a children’s pre-parade event. Throughout the day, those in attendance can take advantage of music, food, and drinks. There will be a special children’s arts and crafts area.

The main parade will begin at noon and wind its way around downtown Petaluma. The downtown area has noteworthy architecture and a unique atmosphere, with its abundance of art galleries, theaters, and antique stores lining the streets. In addition, there are locally-owned shops and one-of-a-kind restaurants with organic ingredients.

The festivities take place on April 26 from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. There will also be a fundraiser on April 14 to help raise money for the parade. It will be held from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Lagunitas Taproom and Beer Sanctuary located at 1280 North McDowell Boulevard. In order to promote these events, the organizers may have used printing services to make flyers to pass out in the community.

Parade rules, along with local booth, volunteer and exhibitor applications, are available for download on the Downtown Petaluma website. For more information, call Marie McCusker at 707-763-0344.
