Although the main features in the parade are bands and schools from all around the state, there were also political parties, veterans associations, and kids clubs who walk and represent in the parade.
"Cub Scouts, the big focus is on a lot of it having fun.," said Carsen Rowley. "At this age, their attention span is really short, so little small amounts of skill, big amounts of fun. We race cars, pine wood derby races, go camping, everyone likes camping, cooking on the campfire, hotdogs marshmallows, that kind of stuff. Hiking, outdoor ethics, stuff like that. Just to kind of lead them into the more in-depth parts of the program as they get older."
Political parties were in large numbers this year, with voters looking to cast their ballot this November. About 14 different candidates for the upcoming elections walked the parade. Loren Lippincott said he wants to see a large turnout at the voting booths this year.
