Plans are underway for the Washington Town & Country Fair Parade, scheduled for Sunday, August 4. Each year, a Grand Marshal and Honor Group are selected to lead the parade. Last year, the Parade Committee developed a process for members of the community to submit nominations for Grand Marshal and Honor Group. Nominations are now being sought for this year’s parade. The awards are designed to recognize an outstanding individual (Grand Marshal) and organization (Honor Group) that better our community through service, leadership, and volunteerism.
Nomination forms are available here or at the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce Office at 323 West Main Street. Nominations must be submitted by March 31, 2019. Completed forms can be returned to the Chamber Office or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Market Steers and Dairy Cows to be entered in the 2019 Washington Town & Country Fair will be tagged on Saturday, February 16, 2019, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. A snow date of February 23, 2019 has been set if weather does not permit tagging to take place on February 16. If necessary, cancellation due to weather will be announced on the our website and Facebook page. Information will also be provided to KLPW and The Missourian. The tagging will be held at the Livestock Pavilion at the Washington City Park Fairgrounds. Exhibitors will be allowed to tag two market steers or dairy cows, but may only enter one. Market steer weight at fair time must be 1,000 to 1,450 lbs.
