The Grandin Village Holiday Children’s Parade is a long-standing tradition held the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This is a children's parade for non-motorized vehicles for the Grandin Business District and Raleigh Court areas. Line-up for the parade is between 10 - 10:30 am in the parking lot at Christ Lutheran Church at the corner of Grandin Road and Brandon Avenue. The parade begins at 11 am and proceeds to the corner of Grandin and Memorial Ave.
To celebrate the Grandin Village Children's Holiday Parade's 40th anniversary we have addex a Mini Parade Float Contest! Keeping in mind that this is a children's parade and cannot use motorized vehicles, this year's participants will automatically be considered for the challenge as long as they have something decorated that they are pushing or pulling that has wheels - strollers, hand-pulled wagons, and shopping carts are ideas as to what will be considered a mini float. We encourage creative thinking!
 
There will be 3 trophies handed out:
 
- Best overall mini float
- Most thinking-outside-of-the box mini float
- Best mini float created by a business
 
We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!
