The Milaca Area Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the annual Gateway to the Northland Parade, scheduled this year for 6 p.m. Thursday, June 20, in Milaca.
A float competition is featured again this year with prizes for best floats. Dig out those cowboy boots and round up a posse of friends to ride along in this year’s theme: Western.
Entry forms are available at the Chamber office, City Hall and the Times office and must be returned by June 6. Cost is $50 per entry for non-chamber members, $40 per entry for members, $30 per entry for nonprofit food tables (with MACC and property owner approval) and $100 for commercial food vendors (Minnesota food service license and insurance copy required with entry form).
Early registration is necessary to establish proper parade line-up. After receipt of all entry forms and fees, participants will be contacted with their numbers. Entry line up will be at 10th Street NE (entering from the east only off Highway 23). There will not be access through the industrial park streets because that is reserved for marching bands.
Food vendors wishing to sell items may do so on the parade route prior to the parade moving through. Once the parade starts, vendors may be able to sell on an owner-approved site if they have prior authorization.
