Join us Monday, September 2rd, for the annual Labor Day parade and picnic! The IBEW is 3rd in the lineup this year and will be led from our starting point at 15th & Olive Street promptly at 9:00 am. Immediately following the parade, we will return to Willmore Park where there will be plenty of food and refreshments, including snow cones, cotton candy, bouncy houses, and games for the kids!
We have arranged for shuttle buses to ferry members and their families from the picnic location to the parade and back again. If you plan to attend the picnic we recommend you take the shuttle. The shuttle buses will depart Willmore Park for the parade promptly at 7:30 am, please arrive in plenty of time to board the bus.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no throwing of candy or other items from floats or vehicles. Only those marching in the parade can hand out candy.
