Whalan’s 21st Stand Still Parade coming Saturday, May 21

Mon, Apr 25th, 2016
Posted in Whalan Arts & Culture

Spring is here and Whalan’s Stand Still Parade is just around the corner. This year’s parade—the 21st annual—will take place Saturday, May 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be a day of fun events, food, and entertainment for the whole family!

The famous Stand Still Parade will “stand still” from 11 a.m. until 12 p.m. with music, interactive units, antique cars and tractors. After you walk the parade route, look for artists selling items in booths located along the Root River State Bike Trail, food booths, and more.

The theme for this year’s Stand Still Parade will focus on the historic train that traveled through Whalan for generations. There will be special activities featuring trains to spark the interest of both adults and children. The well-known Duluth Depot will have a train set on loan in Whalan for all to see and enjoy. Don’t miss it!

Fresh, delicious local food prepared on site is always a special part of the Stand Still Parade, including hot turkey sandwiches, brats, kraut, and hot dogs. Several homemade desserts and lefse will satisfy your appetite along with pop, hot coffee, and water.

Once you’ve enjoyed the parade, exhibits, and food, sit back and relax with fun, live music that will keep your toes tapping. Maybe you’ll even sing along to your favorite songs. The Whalan Museum will hold its summer season Grand Opening on the 21st as well—drop by for their used book sale on May 21-22.

“All aboard!” Mark your calendars for Whalan’s Stand Still Parade on Saturday, May 21—a day packed with fun for the whole family!
