The parade will be held from 11 a.m. to noon. Staging begins at 9:30 a.m. on 8th Street and Central Avenue in Great Falls. Anyone interested in helping decorate a float before the event should arrive at 10 a.m. The route is an easy eight block stroll down Central Avenue, and anyone who would like to participate but not walk is welcome to ride in the MSU float.
