GREENSBURG – The Decatur County Fair Board has announced plans for this year's 4-H Fair parade, which organizers are saying will be the best 4-H parade ever!

With the theme “Hometown Heros in the Heartland,” the parade starts at 5 p.m. Sunday (July 14). The parade will leave from near the Decatur County Sheriff's Department on S. Ireland Street and proceed down Park Road to the grandstand area of the fairgrounds.

Participants are to begin lining up after 3 p.m., with judging taking place at 4:30 p.m.

Participants are asked to try to keep Ireland Street open for participant drop-off.

For line-up, drive to McKee Street if you are listed on Ireland or at the Sheriff’s Department. Others may go directly to their destination in the line-up. Participants not previously registered for the parade may come down to McKee Street for line-up assignment.

The Decatur County CERT team will be there in yellow vests to help with line-up and direct traffic.

All of the east-west streets will still be used for line-up, so check for your location carefully.

Participants may throw candy or pass out items along the parade route.
