“The salute to agriculture and the honor to the Future Farmers of America organization has definitely made a difference in the number of entries and the kind of interest being generated” said parade co-chairman Steve Maxey. “It is exciting to see area FFA chapters joining in to salute their organization and the addition of more classes and prize money all speak to the large number of participants.”

“Over 20 categories will be judged with over $1200 in cash and merchandise being awarded to prize winners,” said Rick Klinginsmith, the other parade co-chair. “Out of town judges will select the top entries and he encourages interested participants to make their reservations soon as a cut-off may occur with the number expected to grow in parade entrants.”

Persons are reminded that horses will be allowed in the parade this year and officials expect a large number of antique and restored tractors and farm machinery to add to the history of the parade. The addition of a tractor show following the parade has also added to the growth in parade entries.

Businesses that are contributing prize money to sponsor parade categories include the Chula Farmer’s Cooperative, MFA Agri-Services of Trenton and Laredo, Farmer’s Mutual Insurance, and FCS Financial-Crop Insurance in addition to Sydenstricker Farm & Lawn as the grand prize winner along with Hoffman & Reed, Moore’s Farm Supply and Orscheln Farm & Home that were previously announced.

Many special guests will also participate in the parade in addition to many outstanding high school marching bands making this parade one of the largest, if not the biggest, in all of north Missouri.

Parade entries need to be pre-registered and may be made by contact Steve Maxey at 359-7244 or Rick Klinginsmith at 359-2274. The 29th annual Missouri Day Parade will be held on Saturday, October 19th at 8:30 am.
