2018 Antioch Ladies Parade Information

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!

Clark County/Springfield Memorial Day Parade

Clark County's Memorial Day parade has, for decades, honored those veterans who answered the same call but never came home. In Vietnam alone, 62 Clark County men died. It's long been believed that the local parade - which begins at High Street and Fountain Avenue in Springfield, then heads north on Fountain to McCreight Avenue, where it takes a left toward Ferncliff - is one of the largest of its kind in the nation. This is a very inspiring parade with many Military and Veteran groups participating. You'll leave with a great feeling of patriotism. The afterglow is at the Springfield Shrine Club, which will do it's best to make us feel welcome.

This is the kickoff of the parade season. The ladies usually gather in Library Park. This is a great spot to put your chair down, then wander through the craft booths that offer all sorts of goodies.

This parade is for a great cause - Hospice Patient Care. The parade is always a fun time - Not only will you see our fabulous Shriners, you will see the crazy people of Indian Lake with their decorated golf carts.

This parade starts in downtown Urbana and ends at the Champaign County Fairgrounds.

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.
