The Wallingford Parade has a seven decade history!
It began as a Kiddie Parade (the only kiddie parade in the city, by the way) and throughout the years has had several different faces. There were mini festivals, not so mini festivals and at times, the event nearly fell into such disrepair that is was questionable whether it would survive.
But survive it has. With the tenacity and new energy of community producers, Celebrate Wallingford, we look forward to many more years of comfy neighborhood fun.
Celebrate Wallingford is a new neighborhood non-profit created especially to produce the parade, but has plans to work on other Wallingford projects, too.
Here's the Executive Board
Debbi Larson, President
Mark Aucutt, Vice President
Stephen Finkenscher, Treasurer
Kathy Boran, Secretary
