Town celebrations and parades are regular events during the summer for many cities, but neither are being held in Evansdale this year. Organizers have decided to cancel a parade that was scheduled to be held Saturday morning (July 12, 2014).

For the past several years, the parade has been a popular part of Evansdale's “Good Ole' Days” celebration. When organizers cancelled the 2014 city-wide festival following a lack of community support in 2013, city officials were hoping to salvage the parade.

Evansdale Fire Rescue took on the challenge and decided to organize the 2014 parade under the theme “Because We Care.” Fire department officials have been accepting parade applications for more than a month.

Wednesday night, organizers cancelled the parade due to a lack of pre-registered participants.
