Cranberry Festival Parade
Parade check-in time TBD
Bandon High School, 550 9th St. SW, Bandon
We welcome businesses, organizations, and individuals to join the Bandon Cranberry Festival parade. Parade entries should be appropriate to each year’s festival theme. The 2021 Theme is “The Great Cransby… Return of the Roaring 20’s.” Entries are eligible for ribbons given for 1st and 2nd place in each parade category, and a Grand Marshal award. (There are no cash prizes.)
The Cranberry Court is an opportunity for Juniors from Bandon and Pacific High Schools to earn scholarships, gain life skills, and become representatives for the Bandon Cranberry Festival. Throughout the year, the court will make many public appearances at events around Coos County. They will also receive training to refine their skills in public speaking, talent, and pageantry, to ultimately compete to be crowned as Cranberry Queen at our coronation ceremony.
