The La Crescent Apple Festival Board of Directors cordially invites you to participate in our Annual King Apple Parade. Each year, the King Apple parade is held on the Sunday of Applefest at 1:00 PM in La Crescent, MN.








Spectators: Please be kind to the La Crescent Community, and help keep everyone safe. We ask that everyone who chooses to attend the parade, to social distance from other people not in your group, as well as to wear a mask when you are unable to distance from other groups. We respectfully request that you do not attend the parade if you are unable to follow the guidelines. We strive to provide a safe and fun event for people of all ages, and this requires your assistance. When we work together, we can accomplish amazing things……like a fun parade 😉 




Please indicate the one category that most closely identifies your entry.


Also, indicate if you are a musical or non-musical float, and the size of your float, as this will help us in staging your unit in the parade line up.


Only moving vehicles, no walkers will be allowed in the 2020 King Apple Parade. In addition, we will not allow any items to be handed out or thrown to the crowd.


As always there will be no charge for non-business/non-profit units. The traditional $65 fee for all other units is waived for 2020. 


La Crescent Apple Festival requires a certificate of insurance from all motorized parade vehicles. Please attach your certificate of insurance or have it sent to my attention.


Please submit your registration form by September 14. 


Information regarding the staging area, line up numbers, judging and place of awards presentation will be posted on this website’s Parade News – Blog page before the parade.
