Children 8 and under are invited to march in the Children’s Parade to kick off the start of the Strawberry Festival. This year’s theme is “Pokemon.” You gotta catch ‘em all at the parade! Start planning your costume and props. No bicycles or pets please. Staging begins at 11:15 a.m. on NW 197th Street on the north side of the park. The parade begins at 11:45 a.m. and will make two laps around the sidewalk on the perimeter of the park led by a Shorewood High School drum line. This is not a competition and is purely for fun. All are welcome!
