THE COLUMBUS CHILDREN'S PARADE IS ABOUT 28 YEARS OLD - NO ONE CAN QUITE REMEMBER EXACTLY!
THROUGH THE YEARS THE PARADE HAS SERVED AS A FOCAL POINT FOR SELF AND COMMUNITY ESTEEM FOR HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED. ORIGINALLY A SUB COMMITTEE OF HOT TIMES, THE PARADE BECAME IT'S OWN ENTITY ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO AND IS NOW ORGANIZED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
CENTRAL COMMUNITY HOUSE.
THE COLUMBUS CHILDREN'S PARADE GIVES KIDS THE OPPORTUNITY TO FREELY AND CREATIVELY EXPRESS THEMSELVES THROUGH MUSIC AND ART - DECORATED BIKES, STROLLERS & WAGONS, FANCY HATS AND COSTUMES ARE ALL WELCOME TO MARCH ALONG WITH LOCAL DRUMMERS, MASCOTS AND DRILL TEAMS.
Find a couple sticks or spoons or any two things to bang together (get permission from an adult) and play along
