Everyone’s invited to join in this small town tradition. The Ilwaco Children’s Parade is held on the Saturday of Loyalty Days weekend. It is a celebration of all things patriotic as well as the kick off of the “season” in Ilwaco. Get out your best red, white and blue attire, dress up your bike, bring your pet, decorate a float or walk along. This is a celebration of all things patriotic.
The parade starts in downtown Ilwaco and goes just a short way to the opening day of the Ilwaco Saturday Market at the Port of Ilwaco. Visits the market as well as businesses along the waterfront. Grab yourself some lunch and then join the “Blessing of the Fleet”, sponsored by the Ilwaco Charter Association. Free boat rides are offered by local charters. Check in at a local charter office for more information. Blessing of the fleet at 3 pm.
