Join us on Wednesday, July 24 from 6:00 – 8:00pm for the 15th annual BFK Children’s Parade presented by Thedacare! Kids and their families are invited to stroll down College Avenue in themed costumes and non-motorized floats in a parade all about them!

Then after the parade, we’ll host free activities in City Park with food trucks from the Fox Valley Food Truck Association.

Participants should arrive at Houdini Plaza (right across the street from the BFK) between 5:50 – 6:15pm and will be sent down College Avenue in waves.

Registration is free but required. Please register by Tuesday July 23rd to be eligible for judging.
