Frankfort Avenue Easter Parade says
Louisville's ONLY Easter Parade happens on Frankfort Avenue!

The Easter Parade will start around 11:30 am in front of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 2822 Frankfort Avenue and travels to Pope Street (extended this year from Haldeman Avenue) bringing free candy and Easter cheer to thousands of children lining the route.

The staging area for the Easter Parade will be between Stilz and Birchwood Avenue and will begin assembly around 10:00 am. Parade participants include the Shriners, Louisville Bagpipe Band, Hwang’s Martial Arts, the Animal House Adoption, the Mounted Sherriff’s Posse, antique cars and trucks, and homemade floats of all kinds.

2016 Grand Marshal is The Louisville City Football Club - our new professional soccer team and of course…the Easter Bunny!

The "Good Ears" awards will be presented to the most creative floats. The Judges station is located in front of the Irish Rover, 2319 Frankfort Avenue. The parade is broadcast live by Crescent Hill Radio WCHQ, 100.9, and emceed by Tara Basset.

The parade as always is a FREE, family-friendly event. A trolley will run along the Avenue after the parade until 2:00 pm. For more information, call Michaelle at (502) 419-6159 or
