Saturday, July 22 – Renton River Days Parade

Application process is closed. Application deadline was June 28, 2017.  

DSC1511-XL---GaryPalmer400Spectators will line South 3rd Street from Shattuck Avenue to Liberty Park on Saturday, July 22, for Renton’s hometown Parade, starting at 10:00 a.m. Parade welcomes the annual return of Kent Phillips, of STAR 101.5 FM, as our Parade Announcer. Entries are expected to be designed or organized in a quality manner and feature high entertainment value for our Parade spectators. Entries should be creative, unique, and decorated. Incorporating music into entries is always a big hit with the crowds.

For questions about the Parade on Saturday, July 22, please contact Volunteer Parade Chair Nancy Quinn at 425.572.5702 or email at

Volunteers are needed to assist with Parade morning set-up, staging, and monitoring intersections for safety. Please call Nancy if you are interested in volunteering for the Parade.

SPECIAL NOTICE: Renton River Days has a budget to provide a modest contribution to local or visiting marching bands, or other Parade entries with musicians or bands and help offset expenses. Marching bands and musicians really captivate the crowds. Our Parade Committee would like more entries like this to consider. Please call Nancy to discuss your marching band or musician-based Parade entry.
