Strike Up the Band!

The times they keep a changin' but it seems like Red, White and Blue never go out of style! (with a splash of  pig pink thrown in!)

The annual Hog Days parade is the focal point of Saturday's weekend celebration.  The parade winds its way from one end of town to the other with over a hundred entries celebrating pigs, agriculture and patriotism in general. With 35 years practice under their belt, the parade is expertly planned and executed by the Kewanee Chamber of Commerce Ambassador's Club.

Upon entering the parade, all applicants are categorized with awards going to those judged best in each of the categories. For 2015, the winners included:

  • State Bank of Toulon - Commercial Award
  • Visitation School - Not for Profit Award
  • Appliances Unlimited - Ambassador's Award
  • Preferred Health Care - Sweepstakes Award
  • Great Dane Trailers - Most Original
  • Parade Marshal was Bruce Tossell, former Mayor and City Councilman of the City of Kewanee.

    You can get more information regarding entry in the 2016 Hog Days Parade from the Kewanee Chamber of Commerce or by clicking here.

    Come join us Saturday, September 3rd, 2016 at 2 PM for one of the lynchpins of our Labor Day weekend celebration that is viewed by several thousand...the annual Hog Days Parade!
