Don't miss your opportunity to be part of the best part of summer -

the Dakota Thurston County Fair Parade! The Parade is August 3rd and begins  at 6:00 P.M. sharp at 11th & Dakota.

Make sure to hit the avenue early so you get a front row seat to the action. There is plenty of curb space along Dakota Avenue to park your lawn chair. Don't forget to bring your goody bags! Candy, coupons, frisbies and more will be tossed, thrown and handed to you as you recline and gaze at the assortment and variety of creative parade entrants from local business, celebrities, organizations and community groups. 

Remember to watch out for water! You might get sprayed by a fire hose -the local fire departments don't want you to overheat.  But don't let that damper your spirits,

the fun continues with the

Free Community BBQ following the parade. Delicious pulled pork sandwiches will be provided by GR8 BBQ at the Fairgrounds beginning at 7:30P.M. 


Make sure you stick around to catch the

"Tri-State Shootout" Tractor Pull.

Admission is only $5.
