Summerfest Parade — leave from Gilles-Sweet Elementary
Join us at Gilles-Sweet Elementary (W. 210 just north of Lorain) to march in the parade to Bohlken Park. It’s a nice stroll through our city at an easy pace and a good way to show off the club to our community.

Note that there is no parking at Gilles-Sweet, so arrange a carpool drop-off with a friend. Plan to be there by 5:30 to find our group and line up; the parade steps off at 6 pm sharp.

The parade route has changed from years past. It will not go down Lorain Road; instead, it will proceed north on W. 220, east on Westwood, and then north on W. 210 to the rear entrance of Westgate. The new route is slightly longer than the old route. If you’re not marching in the parade, plan your watch spot with the new route in mind.

Friday, July 28 – Sunday, July 30

Summerfest — Bohlken Park
Members, watch your email for opportunities to participate in Summerfest activities and join our club in helping other organizations with their booths. See the Summerfest website for information on all the weekend’s events.
