Entries are needed for the Jasper County 4-H and FFA Parade, which will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, July 21, in Colfax.

Everyone is welcome to participate. Lineup will begin at 5 p.m. Open division floats will line up on Broadway Street west of the elementary school. Classic and Antique Cars will line up on Spring Street. 4-H and FFA floats will line up on Broadway Street south of the elementary school. All horses will unload at Kelly Field in the parking lot. This is located north of Highway 6 on Kelly Street. There will be no unloading of horses on Spring Street, West Street or Broadway Street near Conway Lots. There will be no parking on West Street, as this is the alternate traffic route.

For safety reasons, no items are to be thrown from any unit in the parade. This includes candy, pennies, balloons, pencils, etc. You may have people walking along side the street handing out such items. No paper pamphlets or brochures of any kind are to be handed out during the parade, due to the litter these cause.
