9:45am - Noon

Parade Theme: Reflecting on our Rivers


alt alt alt

Each year, more than 50,000 people line the streets of downtown Fort Wayne to see the floats, hear the bands and to celebrate the kickoff to Fort Wayne's Biggest Summer Celebration since 1969. Come out and see the many colorful parade floats, balloons, and bands Fort Wayne has to offer. The family friendly environment the Three Rivers Festival brings is perfect for kids, teens, and adults!

Sit along the 2 mile stretch of the parade route beginning on Van Buren by St. Joeseph Hospital and ending along Caloun Street. The parade starts at 9:45 so get there early and get a great viewing spot to see the floats and the best of the Lutheran Health Network Parade!
