Riverboat Heritage Days Parade

You’re invited to join us for the annual Riverboat Days Parade on Saturday, August 7th, 2021 in downtown Aitkin.

We hope to make this year’s Riverboat Days Parade extra special. The town of Aitkin is celebrating 150 years of vibrant history! COVID-19 restrictions have lifted and we can finally be together again to celebrate our community. We hope that you will participate in the fun by having a float in the parade line up. It’s a great way to promote your business, group, cause, club, or organization. Around 2500 visitors watch the parade, so make an impression!

This year’s parade theme is “A Parade of Decades”. Be creative and let your imagination go wild!
Prizes will be given for three categories:

1. Best Overall Float
2. Best “Decades” Float
3. Best Kids Float

The parade runs from 1st ST SW to 4th ST NW on Minnesota Avenue.  Line-up starts at 1pm and we’ll issue a line-up number to you when you arrive.

The Riverboat Days Parade of Decades is sponsored by Mille Lacs Energy Cooperative and made possible by their support.
