The 33rd Annual Cortland Festival and Parade will kick off at 1:00 p.m. this Sunday, October 12th, and will feature members of local bands, scout troops, clubs and other organizations. In celebration of the Town of Cortland’s upcoming sesquicentennial on February 12, 2015, the parade committee has chosen “Significant Moments in History” for the theme of the parade this year. Groups in town put on their best shows to compete for cash prizes and lots of candy is involved in making the crowd happy.
The parade route this year is Loves Rd. (S) to Carol Ave. (E) to Hickory Dr. (S) to Pine St. (E) to Somonauk Rd. (S) to Maple St. (E) to Llanos St. (N) to the Cortland Community Park. The Parade Committee will be hosting a small festival at Cortland Community Park after the parade. Vendors will offer food for purchase. The day promises to be great fall fun for all ages.
Beginning staging is at 11 A.M. at N. Loves Road and W. Cortland Center Road. The parade steps off at 1 P.M. rain or shine. Anyone interested in being in the parade or wanting more information should contact Judy Butler at 815-751-6683.
