The Chesterton Wizard of Oz Festival will honor all veterans and current
military personnel at the upcoming Wizard of Oz parade on Saturday, Sept.
Veterans and military personnel are invited to join the parade by marching
as a group in front of the parade, so that the parade goers can express
thanks for their service. The parade step-off is at 10 a.m. Participants
should arrive well before step-off in order to set up.
Those unable to walk the 1.5-mile route may call Parade Organizer Michael
Boo at 926-6631 so the parade can provide an adequate number of vehicles.
Parade organizers will provide transportation down the route.
If desired, veterans and military personnel may bring their hats, service
flags, post banners or any other desired item.
Participants should meet at 8th Street and Morgan, just south of the
Chesterton Town Hall and Fire and Police Department at the corner of the
Chesterton Middle School gym.
