You won’t want to miss the annual Pioneer Days parade in Kalida. The event is called one of Northwest Ohio’s largest and most colorful parades. Thousands of spectators watch the parade each year on Pioneer Sunday. The annual Pioneer Days parade starts at 1:30 PM SHARP on Pioneer Sunday. Tim Wehri and The Big Kahuna from 106.3 The Fox will be the emcees for the reviewing stand on Broad Street, while Joe Recker and Rick Kortokrax will do the duties on the South Fourth Street reviewing stand. Some of the parade units will include floats, antique and new tractors and cars, equestrian groups, high school marching band units, clowns, fire trucks and EMS vehicles, youth groups, athletic teams, 4-H groups, churches, civic organizations and local, county and state elected government officials. The parade
route begins near Kalida Elementary School on Fourth Street, goes from Fourth to Price Street, then to Water Street and on to Broad Street (East U.S. 224). The parade then travels on U.S. 224 through downtown Kalida and ends at Putnam Street just past St. Michael’s Catholic Church.
