RESCHEDULED! Lights on the Lake Parade

HEADS UP, OSAWATOMIE!

Due to the threat of incoming severe weather, Osawatomie’s annual Lights on the Lake parade has been RESCHEDULED to 11:00am Saturday, June 26th, 2021. Out of respect for an already scheduled funeral service, the parade route will begin at 3rd Street and we ask that parade spectators and participants leave Main Street parking between 1st and 3rd open for funeral home use.

If you have already registered for the parade, event organizers should have sent out the email with the lineup change and new map. Please direct questions to those organizers!

If you live or work along Main Street between 3rd and 12th, please have your vehicle moved by tomorrow morning. For residents that live on 3rd St from Main to Brown or on Brown from 3rd to 5th, your neighborhood is the new staging area for the parade. We have someone hand-delivering flyers to your residence this afternoon to help alert you to this change.

Our parade is usually rain or shine, but your safety is always our top priority and tonight’s forecast looks like a lot more than just rain.

We’ll see everyone tomorrow morning to kickoff a great weekend of activities!

*In the event of severe weather tomorrow morning, the parade will be cancelled. There will not be another opportunity for a reschedule.*

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS & GUIDELINES FOR LEFTOVERS

Those who have registered their sales may donate leftover sale items between noon and 4 p.m. Saturday, June 12th by bringing them to the City Auditorium.

(Sorry, but we no longer accept any sale-day leftovers from those who have not paid to register. If you would like to contribute items ahead of time, please see the donation guidelines on the front and the list of items not accepted.)

NOT ACCEPTED

Broken/non working household items, furniture, unusable clothing, tires, construction waste, paint, chemicals, batteries, weapons, large appliances

DROP-OFF DEADLINE

All leftover items must be dropped off by 4 p.m. so volunteers can get everything sorted and put out for the Sunday sale. Items dropped off after the deadline may be refused, or the person dropping off late items may be asked to stay and put them out.

NO RAIN DATE

Please note that due to the number of people involved in making this weekend a success, there is no way to provide a rain date for garage sale participants.
