Menahga Midsummer Celebration 2018

July 6 - July 8

menahga midsummer parade band

Want to join us in the Saturday parade? We’re gearing up for another exciting Midsummer Celebration.

Greetings from the Menahga C & C!

The Menahga Civic & Commerce Association is busy making plans for the 2018 Menahga Midsummer Celebration, which will be held Friday through Sunday, July 6, 7 and 8th

One of the highlights of the Midsummer Celebration each year, is the Grand Parade on Saturday evening. You are cordially invited to participate in this year’s parade on Saturday, July 7th, 2018, which will begin at 7:00 p.m., from the east end of Main Street. The parade runs east to west on Main Street for nine blocks from Fern Avenue to Fir Avenue.  THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE FOR OUR PARADE!

If you are no longer in charge of your organization’s parade entry, please pass this message on to the person who now has that responsibility.

All entries must enter the line-up area from the south, at the (East side of the Menahga School) High School parking lot on or before 6:30 p.m.  It is located one block east of the St. Urho Statue on Highway 71. Parade officials will be able to direct you to your spot in the line-up from that area.

The deadline for all entries will be Friday June 15th, 2018, but your earliest attention to this matter will be greatly appreciated to get started on the line-up. If you have any questions, call Liz Olson, at 218-564-4141, Ext. #331, or evenings 218-329-5645. In anticipation of your positive reply, the Menahga Civic and Commerce Association would like to thank you for helping make our parade a successful event. We look forward to seeing you in July!

AS A REMINDER:  ABSOLUTELY NO CANDY CAN BE THROWN FROM A VEHICLE OR FLOAT FOR SAFETY REASONS.   THANKS FOR YOUR COOPERATION!

Sincerely,
The Menahga C & C Parade Committee

We had a lot of success last year and look forward to making this year even better.

To better promote the Craft Show, we have posted an Event Page on Facebook. To help get the word out, invite all you know who may be interested in participating as a Vendor/Crafter/Artisan.

Crafters/Vendors will be able to set up between 7:00 AM and 9:00 AM. You will be instructed on where to set up and park. Like in past years, it will be very informal and you will be placed as you arrive.

We only allow one (1) representative from each company, so get your name in to me ASAP. Food Vendors will not be allowed, other than our local Dairy and Church groups.

RATE: $25.00 per 10′ X 10′ Space. You provide your own tables/canopy.
