Community Parade

Don’t miss the elaborate and entertaining parade that proceeds down Main Street around Ligonier’s picturesque Diamond at 11:00 AM on Saturday. The parade will include historic units, floats, costumed characters, the shrine units and special guests, including local TV personalities, high school and college bands. This is a spectacular part of Fort Ligonier Days!
