We will gather signatures from the spectators along the parade route BEFORE the parade begins at 7:00 pm.
Parade Route (approx. 1/2 mile): starts at NE 103rd Ave. & E. Yelm Ave. (First Citizens Bank and the Shell station), goes up Yelm Ave, turns left at Tim’s Pharmacy (1st St. S) and ends at Yelm City Park.
We will likely meet up for Beer & Brats at the Yelm Co-op's Oktoberfest-type event in their parking lot afterwards. The Yelm Food Cooperative is located at 308 E. Yelm Avenue in the heart of downtown and the middle of the parade route! They share a retail space with local landmark Gordon’s Garden Center, across the street from La Gitana Pizzeria and next to Gordon’s Grange.
The Yelm Prairie Days Parade is a decades old tradition which features floats, music, military processions, children, and motorcycles and lots of candy and goodies. The parade ends at Yelm City Park where the Yelm Lions host Prairie Days for the remainder of the weekend with food, vendor booths and a carnival. Many neighborhoods also host big yard sales.
