4-H Theme

We have 80 official entries that include Trucks, Tractors, Semi Tractors, Royalty, Floats, Horses, Fire, EMS, Sheriff, City PD, and many more fun things! If you have not registered, you are still welcome to participate. You will just come to the line-up and let officials know that you did not pre-register. We will get you added to the end of the line-up. 

Organizers are asking the public to keep Ireland Street open for participant drop-off.

For line-up, drive to McKee Street if you are listed on Mckee, Ireland street, or around the Health Department. Others may go directly to their destination in the line-up.

Keep the intersection from W. Mckee St. & S. Monfort St. to the intersection of W. Mckee St. & S. Ireland St Clear for Emergency Responders & for entries to enter and exit

The Decatur County CERT team will be there in yellow vests to help with line-up and to direct traffic. East-west streets will be used for line-up, so check for your location carefully and know your number in line.

WTRE will be broadcasting from their front lawn during the parade.

Parade Organizer Chris Ramey would like to thank Decatur County 4-H Fair Committee Members, Decatur County Commissioners, Decatur County CERT Team, Mayor Josh Marsh, Greensburg Street Department, Greensburg Police Department, WTRE, and the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department. Ramey commented, “We are going to have a wonderful fair parade.”

Participants may throw candy or pass out items along the parade route.

The Parade route has changed a bit this year. The parade will begin on Ireland Street, turn right onto Park Rd, and proceed down Park Rd between the Fairgrounds and the City Park, if the entry has to offload riders, then they will turn left by the Decatur County Extension Office towards the Highway Department. If the entry would like to leave the fairgrounds they will be turning right towards Main Street. Officials will be available along the parade route to ensure that the route is followed. THE PARADE WILL NOT ENTER THE FAIRGROUNDS.
