Pancake Day Parade Creates New Category For Motorized Vehicles

KSCB News - January 22, 2016 8:03 am

Do you have a snazzy convertible or motorcycle you d like to show off in a parade? The Pancake Day parade committee has created a new category for motorized vehicles to include vehicles that don t fall under the antique description.
Entries are still being accepted for the International Pancake Day Parade, slated for Feb. 6, the Saturday before Pancake Day. Cash prizes will be awarded in five categories and this year s parade theme is Making a Difference in Our Community.
There is no entry fee, and any group or individual is invited to enter a float in one of the following divisions: commercial, non-profit, schools, antique automobiles and equipment, and motorized vehicles. Cash prizes of $150 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place will be awarded in each division. Local and area marching bands are also invited to participate.
Entrants do not have to live in Liberal, and organizers are hoping for increased participation from out-of-town organizations and schools since the parade will be on a Saturday.
The parade, sponsored each year by the Liberal Rotary Club, is set to begin at 3 p.m., Sat., Feb. 6.
Parade entry forms may be mailed to Janet Willimon at 1811 N. Calhoun, Liberal, KS 67901 or faxed to (620) 626-7887. Entry forms may also be emailed to [email protected] . For more information on the parade, call Janet Willimon at (620) 655-2642 or Mike Brack at (620) 482-0466.
