There will be bands, floats, and marching units consisting of members of local schools, businesses and other groups. Parade participants will want to get their banner printing done soon. The route will begin and end in front of St. Jude Catholic Church.

On the last day, the Mansfield Women’s Club will be sponsoring a Tour of Homes.
