Each year, nearly 40,000 people are in McPherson on the 2nd Friday in May for the All Schools Day parade, and this year will be no exception. We hope you won’t miss this year’s All Schools Day Parade!
The All Schools Day committee is working hard to make the 110th celebration a unique, special event. The “Best Commercial Float” will be back this year, along with the “Peoples’ Choice Award”. Knowing there are many talented float builders in the area, we know you will not be disappointed in the floats.
The 2023 McPherson County All Schools Day Parade will be held on Friday, May 12, beginning promptly at 10:30 am.
