On Saturday, May 25, 2013 the Perry 200 Grand Patriotic Parade will be in held in
downtown Erie at 1:00 p.m. The 1.8 mile route will travel east on 12th Street from
Cherry to 3rd and State Street through downtown Erie.
This historic parade will feature over 20 bands, including a Mummer's String Band from Philadelphia, bands from Canada, and the 10-time World Champion Junior Corps-the Cadets. Numerous floats and marching units featuring Erie's diverse
ethnic communities and civic organizations are also expected, as well as re-enactment groups, antique cars, plus much more! Also, as often seen in the Rose Bowl or Macy's Parades, the Grand Patriotic Parade will feature giant helium-filled cartoon and patriotic balloons, which haven't been seen in Erie in nearly 18 years!
Governor Tom Corbett will lead the parade as Grand Marshal, along with Erie Mayor
Joe Sinnott, County Executive Barry Grossman, and other national, state, and local
political officials. The parade is expected to be the largest and most diverse celebration ever seen on the streets of Erie!
An anticipated crowd of around 100,000 people will be in attendance
Note: During the parade, the Vietnam Veterans will have a volunteer bucket brigade collecting for the Erie County Vietnam Memorial construction. They are the only approved group soliciting funds.
