Parade Information Letter


It’s time to mark your calendar for the HOPKINS COUNTY DAIRY FESTIVAL PARADE! This year’s Festival is the 59th and the theme is “Party ‘Til The Cows Come Home”. We are planning for another big parade which in the past few years has had around 100 entries.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you and/or your organization to participate in the Parade, Saturday June 9, 2018.

To further enhance the excitement, please take time to enjoy the Hot Air Balloon Show and Rally which takes place during the entire weekend, starting Friday, June 8, 2018. This year’s Dairy Festival is the event you will not want to miss!

The Parade will begin at 10:00 a.m. from Buford Park in Sulphur Springs. If you can participate or know someone who would like to, please fill out the parade participation form and bring it with you on parade day.

We ask that entries be of good taste and, for safety reasons, three – wheelers and four – wheelers will not be allowed. (Only as organized groups or commercial entries) Your entry must reflect this year’s theme, “Party ‘Til The Cows Come Home”. We are excited to see how your entry will add excitement to this year’s parade and our classic board games theme.

The Dairy Festival Board reserves the right to decline any entries.
