The Frankfort Avenue Easter Parade
For the most part, everyone loves a parade. This Saturday gather the family together and come out to the 20th Annual Frankfort Avenue Easter Parade hosted by the Frankfort Avenue Business Association (FABA). This historic parade always takes place the Saturday before Easter Sunday, so this year the festivities take place on April 7th starting at 11am.
This year’s parade will have antique cars, marching bands, dance teams, horse drawn carriages, neighborhood groups, businesses, floats and Shriner cars. Hwang’s Martial artists will be present, along with plenty of people dressed up for the festivities. Even the some of the family dogs will be wearing bunny ears in honor of the Easter rabbit. Participants will be passing out goodies and candy to all the youngsters. The pets in attendance won’t be excluded as there will also be plenty of treats for them as well.
This year the ‘Good Ears’ awards will be handed out by FABA. All the individual float makers strive to create the most unique floating/rolling works of art that show off their ingenuity in hopes of being recognized. There will also be rewards for the most outrageous Easter bonnets. The winner of that is sure to turn a few heads. The judging booths will be set up in front of the Irish Rover at 2319 Frankfort Avenue during the event, so if you want to check out the winners make sure and be in the area.
So Hop on down to Frankfort Avenue and check out the parade, contests and creativity of all the local participants. Anyone is welcome to get involved as no registration fee is required. If you want to join in one of the contests, just register at St. Marks parking lot at 11am with your bonnet or your float. The parade will start at the St. Marks, and head west toward downtown Louisville ended at Haldeman Avenue.
