The Happy Trails Parade is a new twist on history, as The Village in Apple Valley group brings back a beloved event to Apple Valley on October 17.
It’s been eight years since the parade was last held, and many people in the area have felt it’s absence. Now, this piece of Apple Valley history is returning.
The parade marshall is Cliff Earp, a local personality, business owner and serves on the Apple Valley Fire Protection District board of directors.
The parade begins at 10 a.m. on October 17. Get there early to reserve a curbside seat (bring your own chair).
The parade route begins at Central Road and Highway 18, and continues down the south side of Outer Highway 18 for about a mile. This is considered the “Village” area of Apple Valley. The route ends at Pawnee Road.
The group is looking for people to come and join in the fun, and applications are now being accepted for free entries in the parade. Clubs, schools, churches, businesses, individuals, marching bands, car clubs, equestrian groups/individuals, and more are invited to show their community spirit!
Applications can be downloaded and printed from the group’s website at: www.applevalleyvillage.com and
applevalley.or. They are also available for pick-up at the Town of Apple Valley in the Development Services Building.
Applications to participate ended on October 5.
