Annual Huckleberry Festival Parade

2021 Parade Theme: Together Again!

Our parade theme for 2021 is Together Again!, celebrating getting back together for a fun weekend of Festival activities. Come join the fun by either entering a float or watching on the sidelines; whichever way will be an event to remember. The parade starts at 11 a.m. and runs through the park, out to Hwy 200, ending at Cedar. Registration and lineup starts at 10 a.m.  The winner of the grand prize will receive $100!  For more information or to pre-register, please contact Elizabeth Haagenson at 406-827-7117. Volunteers are also needed to help with this event.

This year’s Grand Marshall is Sandy Green and Bob Green (in memoriam), who dedicated hundreds of hours over the years volunteering for the festivals. Sandy has managed the auction for several years, logging countless hours on the phone and road, requesting and collecting donated items for the auction, then cataloging and organizing the auction on Saturday night. Bob, who passed away last year, spent days on end at the park mowing, watering and ensuring everything was kept in top shape for the festivals. He is greatly missed but his legacy is found throughout the beautiful grounds of the park. 

Grand Prize winner will be presented the day of the parade. Grand Prize and Floats must represent parade theme.
