Mark your calendars: this year’s June Dairy Parade and Festival is set for June 24, 2017!!! “60 Years on the MOOVE” will be the theme for the year.
The parade route will be “mooving” a little bit this year. The parade will stage and launch from the high school and Tillamook PUD and officially be underway as it heads north on Main Ave. The route will be up Main to Third, where it will make a right and head east along Third Street before officially disbanding at Goodspeed Park. Here is a map of the parade route:
