Parade Info There's nothing better than a Shrine Parade, so bring the kids and have some fun with us.

I've put together some tidbits about the Pote's Call (parades that our potentate absolutely wants everyone to show) parades. The Crier tells you how to get there and where the Afterglow (an after party with food and drinks for the nobles and their ladies as a thank you for participating) is located, but I've put together some additional information of other things going on at the parade venue.

Everyone at Antioch hopes that you will come with your families and support us. If you are new - this is a great way to see the different units in action and decide which one you would like to join. We have our purpose of supporting our Shriner's Hospitals, but here is where we can get the word out to the community as well as have tons of fun along the way. If you have any questions please send me an Email: jjamie6636@aol.com

email:jjamie6636@aol.com Hope to see you soon - I'm of the Divan ladies having a great time! Some ladies carpool up to the parade meeting areas mentioned in my article, but we also will have the Angel Van available for those who want a ride. The ladies gather by the van at the staging area and we will take as many trips as needed to get you all there!

Preble County "Pork Festival" Parade

This is a first-time parade for me. But everything I've read online says that this will be a great time. Food, food and more food! The best pork chops and pulled pork and ham sandwiches or breakfast pancakes and sausage in the region. Additionally, they have over 350 arts and crafts vendors. Sounds like you don't want to miss this one.

Urbana Parade

Report to the Champaign County Fairgrounds in Urbana, Ohio (384 Park Ave.) no later than 10:15AM The Parade steps off at 12:00PM

This parade starts in downtown Urbana and ends at the Champaign County Fairgrounds. There will be many shops open downtown with sidewalk sales and a farmers market to satisfy your shopping urge if you are so inclined. Pam Spellman always hosts the ladies to watch the parade from her home. The Angel Van can take you there or watch from the end of the road leading to the fairgrounds. The afterglow is put on by the Champaign Co. Shrine Club and they do a wonderful job. If you want a fabulous slice of pie - visit the Urbana Airport Cafe after the afterglow. I recommend the butterscotch! On the way out of town there is a great craft mini mall that sells scrapbooking supplies and beading supplies. Hope to see you at this one.

Heritage of Flight Festival Parade, New Carlisle, OH

You can spend the day with all of the activities going on at this festival. They have things going on Friday, Saturday and Sunday so if you live close - go for it! There will be street vendors and carnival rides and games on Main Street. Look to the sky at 10:45 to see the parachute jumpers, then, the parade starts at 11:00. The ladies usually sit at the corner of Lake and Adams St. at the New Carlisle parade because this is right by the afterglow. Parking for all of the vehicles is on Adams St., so just walk to the end of the street to put down your chair. At the afterglow you can visit the Honeycreek Fire Museum. It's a great little museum with all kinds of fire memorabilia. They usually have a little band there at the afterglow for our entertainment, so it's a great addition to the parade season.

Check out the website for the schedule of events. You'll really enjoy this one.
