Calling All Kids!
You are invited to join us for the Annual Middleton Good Neighbor Festival Kiddie Parade. This popular event is enjoyed by hundreds of kids each year. Some walk, some ride in their stroller or wagon powered by their parents, some ride their decorated bikes or tricycles and some just watch the fun from the sidelines. Don’t miss this fun tradition.
Line-up is at the main entrance to the Middleton High School on Bristol Street, starting at 5pm and marching starts promptly at 5:30pm. Bucky Badger and members of the UW Alumni Band will lead the children on the parade route, accompanied by the Middleton Fire Department and Middleton Police Department.
The Parade Route heads south on Bristol Street and turns right onto Franklin Street, then another right turn onto Middleton Street, followed by a right turn onto North Ave. After that, there is a right turn west to Clark Street, and then a right turn onto Lee Street. (The route goes around Middleton High School). The Parade ends at the entrance to the Festival Grounds on Lee Street.
In addition to the parade, we will have balloons for the kids to help decorate their bikes, strollers and/or wagons. Rockin’ Jump will also be at the line up with a prize wheel for the kids, and Don’t miss out on the chance to break a board with Infinity Martial Arts before the parade.
Many local businesses have contributed some great items for Goodie Bags that are given out at the end of the parade for the first 200 participants.
