- Participate in the Kid's Decorated Bike portion of the parade. Children 12 years and younger can bring their patriotically decorated bikes and ride together in the parade. Parents of very young children may walk with their biker.
- Register your club or business and walk in the parade. This option is excellent for groups who do not want to create a float.
- Participants are asked to meet at the River Road Cemetery at 9:00 AM.
Judges will be on hand to determine the best float in these categories: Best Use of Theme and Best in Show. Please register by Monday, June 28th using the program links below. Advanced registration is required to plan the layout of the parade.
Come support Killington Fire and Rescue with their annual barbecue held underneath the pavilion. This annual meal includes a traditional barbecue meal as well as many other foods.
Killington Fire and Rescue is asking for small side dishes to be donated. These dishes would include; chips, salads of any kind and desserts. Dishes can be dropped off at Chalet Killington on July 3rd between the hours of 2-5 PM. Please include a list of ingredients so we can accommodate food allergies.
