Autumn Fest parade... we are working on a plan to keep 2014 parade on calendar!! When dealing with public safety many factors must be taken into consideration. I am confident we will be successful. Thanks for your understanding. Stay tuned!!!
In what would have been its ninth consecutive year, the annual ND Autumnfest Parade has been canceled just 10 days out due to a new policy stating that trains no longer have to stop for parades.
