Is your Pioneer Day Parade Float Ready?

“You know you’re from Williams when…” is the theme for the 2015 Williams Pioneer Day.

“It’s a great theme that opens up possibilities for parade float themes,” said Citizens for a Better Williams (CBW) President, Pat Ash, “it is a great way to honor our town heritage and history.”

Williams Pioneer Day will be held on Saturday, June 6th, 2015 with the downtown street vendors opening at 9:00 a.m. and the parade starting at 10:00 a.m.

“For the last couple of years the Colusa County Fair has been scheduled on Pioneer Day, which is held the first Saturday in June,” said Ash, “and what a great way to make it a fun filled weekend for the family.”

Ash commented that Fair Parade participants who stroll through downtown Colusa on Friday, June 5th, are welcomed to participate in the Pioneer Day Parade.

“You’ve got your float built, why not show it off during Pioneer Day!” said Ash.

There is no entry fee for parade entries.

“Come on out and have a great time with friends and family,” said Ash.

Changes for this year’s parade includes the relocation of the judging stand.

“The judging stand was typically setup at Williams City Hall,” said Ash, “this year we’ve moved the judging stand to Town Square, at the corner of 7th & E Streets.”

Booth size is 10’ x 10’, and vendors must bring their own tables, chairs, pop-up’s, power, and other items necessary for their sale.
