Join us for the 100th annual Junior Ski to Sea Parade presented by Haggen! This parade has the cutest children, floats, pets and a variety of other sights you don’t want to miss.
The Junior Ski to Sea Parade will be held on Friday, May 15, 2020 beginning at 6:00 PM along Cornwall Avenue in Bellingham.
Anyone can be a part of this event by assembling at the beginning of the parade route (Cornwall and Kearney) from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and Junior Ski to Sea Race teams are encouraged to participate.
Show us your creativity! Make your own parade entry!
Registration is required for floats, car and trucks and marching bands.
In addition, the Junior Parade is looking for volunteers to carry the banners for the parade. Banner-carriers are usually middle school students. Anyone interested can contact the chamber at 360-734-1330.
The parade starts on the corner of Cornwall and Kearney Streets, continues down Cornwall and ends at Railroad and Champion Streets.
Participants may begin lining up at 4:30 p.m. Judging begins at 4:30 p.m.
