Parade Lineup 2017

Maifest Parade May 6, 2017 @ 10:30 am.  Please be in place by 9:30 am.  The parade will start early if weather threatens.  KTEX 106.1 and KWHI 1280 will have updates. 

Thank you so much for  supporting the Brenham Maifest and following the directions below!

Please print the gathering info and Parade Lineup for your group to bring to the parade.  You will need both parts to locate your gathering position and to know when to enter the Parade.

Where to gather prior to and when to enter the Parade:  Please look at the line up below the gathering information.  You will need to know who you follow to enter the parade at the correct time.  The entry you follow may not be parked or gathered near you. If you follow a float, it is easier to locate it by the sponsor (see line up below).

When gathering, please leave the center of the street clear.  Lots of folks and vehicles in limited space – so arrive early, be friendly and have fun!

Please understand the lineup is subject to change before the parade.  Should that occur, a Maifest official will assist you.
