There is a lot going on in Oberlin this month and tomorrow, Saturday, is the kick off that begins with the 10th annual Big Parade! It evolved on a whim 10 years ago as a form of self expression without any centralized organization. Individuals and organizations were free to express themselves as they saw fit and it has been a way for Oberlin College students and the Oberlin community to work together on a common goal. Planning and preparation began months ago and all ‘floats’ will be presented tomorrow as they progress from Eastwood Elementary school to Tappan Square. The Oberlin High School band will lead the way and the Kendal at Oberlin Precision Lawn Chair Drill Team usaually brings up the rear. Rumor has it that there will be a 30 foot, incredible dragon float, and characters from the movie ‘Up.’ The parade will begin at 12:00 noon and go down College St., ending with a community festival at Tappan Square with lots of music and perhaps some food! If you haven’t seen one of our ‘wacky’ parades then you are in for a real treat. Come on over and join in the fun! Hope to see you there! The parade goes on, rain or shine! The pictures are from past parades so you can get an idea what to expect!
