The Spencer Picnic Kiddie Parade will take place Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014 at 6:30pm for kids 12 and under, at the grandstand in Nichols Park, Spencer.
Contestants should come at 6:15pm to sign in and get a number. The theme of Picnic this year is "THE FABULOUS FIFTIES" . Contestants may dress up according to the theme or in any costume they like.
There are prize-winning categories for both kinds of costumes. There are ample cash prizes and every contestant gets free ride tickets. Kids may be encouraged to come up with their own costumes or may wear their favorite dress-up gear, or the whole family can pitch in and make a family project of entering – building something elaborate to enhance the entry. Simple costumes with a good idea are always welcome as are costumes that reflect time, attention to detail and accessories. Whatever your family can manage is good.
Contestants do not need to live in the Spencer Van Etten area. Visiting friends and relatives are very welcome to enter.
