Description

Children's Benvenuti Parade

Families with children through age 12, this is for you! All children participating in the parade will receive a Festival Fun Zone wristband good for Friday night, goodie bags, and more!

Kick-off for the Festival Fun Zone

On Friday, May 17 at 5:30 pm, The Benvenuti Parade kicks off the opening of the Festival Fun Zone, when the games and rides begin! The children will assemble in the Festival Fun Zone at 5:00pm and will be blessed by our pastor, with the parade beginning at 5:30 pm sharp. The parade will march through the festival grounds and end at the outside main stage where the judging will occur for prizes!!! Winners will be chosen and Prince and Princess Benvenuti 2019 will be crowned for the best overall costumes.

Royal Capes will adorn the newest royalty: Prince & Princess Benvenuti of 2019. After photographs, the capes will be returned to the “vault” where they will be safely stored for next year’s royal winners.

After the winners are chosen the parade will march to The Festival Fun Zone to enjoy the games and rides.
