The Augusta Days 2015 “Wild West” parade will be held next Saturday, September 19th at 11am. Line-up will be at 10:15 starting at the corner of Main and East Green St. and heading South. Please line up on the right side of the road and stay beside your entry. We will come to you for a number. Please do NOT sit on the side roads in hopes to blend in with the parade; we will not be able to get to you with a number. To be safe, enter East Green from the north end of town and drive down until you are in line. We will be taking our last entry at 10:45am. We also want to encourage all businesses, churches, services groups, car/tractor/motorcycle clubs, school groups, families etc to join in. The parade ends at the Shelter Care and we all know how much the residents enjoy seeing the parade.
