Music, food, fun and marching bands will bring the community together again for the 15th annual Plymouth on Parade on Sat., Sept. 29, 11:30 a.m. Bring a chair or stand along the parade route to enjoy this perennial favorite. The parade route runs down Plymouth Boulevard from 34th Avenue to 37th Avenues.
New groups will join returning favorites to add to this lively event. The Ha Family Lion Troupe will electrify the crowd with its larger-than-life characters that dance along to the rhythm of drums, reminiscent of a Chinese New Year parade. Marching bands from Armstrong and Wayzata high schools and the Zurah Steel Drum Band will add to the exuberance. The antics of the Aqua Jester clowns will add their light touch to entertain parade-goers.
Free Afternoon Activities
After the parade, stay for an afternoon of free family activities from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Hilde Performance Center and the Plymouth Ice Center/Life Time Fitness area. Come inside for free ice skating, swimming and open gym. If you prefer to stay outdoors, check out face painting, pony rides, petting zoo, musical entertainment and inflatables. Be sure to cheer on your favorite duck at the Ducky Derby Race, sponsored by Minnetonka-Plymouth Rotary.
