The Fish House Parade

You’re invited to join us for the 3oth Fish House Parade on Friday, November 26th in downtown Aitkin.

Let’s bring the Fish House Parade back with a bang! Many COVID-19 restrictions have lifted and we can finally be together again. We hope that you will participate in the fun by having a CREATIVE float in the parade line up. It’s a great way to promote your business, group, cause, club, or organization. Around 3000 visitors watch the parade, so make an impression!

Though you are not required to put a literal fish house in the parade, we ask that you incorporate the theme somehow. Your float MUST be decorated. Anything can be a fish house with enough imagination… Be creative and go wild!

Floats will be judged and CASH prizes will be given for three categories:

1. Fantastic Fish House (most creative fish house.)
2. Rocked the Float (most energetic performance. music encouraged!)
3. Coolest Kids In Town (best youth float.)

The parade starts at the Aitkin County Fairgrounds, travels south on Minnesota Avenue N, and ends at 1st ST NW (turn right by the Post Office).  Line-up starts at 9am and we’ll issue a line-up number to you when you arrive.

Please Note: The Fish House Parade is a family-friendly event. We welcome everyone, but do not allow obscenity, profanity, hate speech, or otherwise inappropriate behavior. Due to COVID, we also ask that floats limit any physical contact with spectators. Candy may be tossed safely from alongside the float!
