The Sparta Elks are in the process of planning the 2017 Fourth of July Community Parade which is schedule for Sunday, July 2, 2017.  Once again, the Sparta Elks will be continuing the long time tradition as we gather for a parade, which is dedicated to the celebration of the birth of our country as well as recognizing our troops and veterans.

The parade will start at approximately 11 a.m. but we request parade units to arrive no later than 10 a.m. Parade line-up will be on East Shore Trail.  The parade line-up assignments will be posted on the Sparta Elks website during the week prior to the parade.  If you are interested in participating in the parade, we request that you fill out an application.  We request that you submit your form no later than, June 24, 2017.  It is important to return the application on time so that parade line-up assignments can be made before hand.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in our community and hope your organization will participate in this year's parade.  Also, if you are aware of any other organization (civic units, charitable, bands, etc.) which might be interested in participating in the parade, we would appreciate a call so information can be sent to them.
