The famous GIGANTIC PARADE has been a family favorite from the very beginning of Dousman Derby Days. It is said to be the best in the area, great entertainment and perfect length. There are ample spots along the parade route to sit and see all the attractions and parking at Cory Park makes it easy.

The average cost for the parade alone is $7,500 per year. The Parade Committee raises money all year with chicken barbeques and spaghetti dinners, but a large portion of the funds required to put on this event come from donations from individuals and businesses, like you. Remember, no donation is too small!

Parade starts at the corner of Main Street and Wilson Ave and travels through downtown, pass Cory Park and turns east on Ottawa Ave and ends at Wolf Drive.
