RESCHEDULED! Lights on the Lake Parade


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.*
