Each year, the Du Quoin State Fair holds a Twilight Parade to proudly announce the opening of the annual showcase in Du Quoin. This year's parade will be held on Friday, August 23rd at 6pm.
The annual Twilight Parade will be self-contained on fairgrounds property. The staging area for the parade will take place on the half-mile track, just inside the Main Gate along Route 51. The parade will step off from the south end of Pacer Avenue and make its way to Midway Drive. From there the parade will travel east towards the Grandstand, turning north on Grandstand Avenue to Main Street where it will march west to Trotter Lane and come to an end once it reaches the half-mile track.
Become a Part of the Parade
There is something for both young and old in the parade – from marchers to riders on horseback and you too can be a part of the fun. The Du Quoin State Fair is looking for groups who are interested in participating in the parade. This year's theme will be announced soon. Participation forms are being accepted now until August 12th.
