Parades


Firefighter’s Parade

The Firefighter’s Parade will take place at twilight on Friday around 9:00 P.M., following the talent show. This is our opportunity to honor the men and women who serve on local fire departments that strive to keep us safe every day and prevent tragedies. Under a dusk sky, Main Street in Stanton will be aglow with the lights and sirens of fire trucks and emergency vehicles from departments all across Montcalm County and the surrounding communities.   


Grand Parade

Everyone is guaranteed a good time at the SOFD Grand Parade, so be sure to find a good spot along Main Street on Saturday at 1:00 P.M.

The Grand Parade features entries ranging from floats to antique cars and tractors, to musical groups and horses, and everything in between. The SOFD Grand Marshals are also featured, of course, so don’t miss the opportunity to give a wave to show appreciation for all their years of dedication to the Stanton community. We encourage individuals and groups of all kinds to participate in the parade and show everyone your community pride.

Pre-registration is not necessary; however, registration forms will be available soon, here on this website. Print off the form, fill it out and bring it with you, or you may complete the form at the registration booth the day of the parade. Members of the Stanton Rotary Club will be organizing the parade this year in the Save-a-Lot parking lot, on W. Day St. just west of M-66 (follow the parade registration signs). Line up starts at 11:00 A.M.

Please Note: Candy cannot be thrown from vehicles or floats; instead, candy and other items must be distributed by walkers close to the crowd for the safety of children. All horse riders must supply a cleanup crew to follow directly behind their horses; streets must be clean for the car show, foot traffic, and food vendors following the parade.
