Vehicles that can safely travel on the highway are welcome to continue ahead and get on KY 38. Anyone on foot, all floats, or any vehicle with people in the back will turn left onto Williams Street and left onto Mound Street to return to a safe location for their participants to disembark.

The parade will not travel on Central Street or 1st Street which means spectators are welcome to park in those areas and walk to either Main or Clover Streets to enjoy the parade.

All floats will be stopping momentarily at the Harlan Center before the judges table.

Prizes will be awarded for the best children’s float, best religious float, best theme, best scouting group and the Harlan Tourism Award. The grand prize winner will receive $500.
