The ‘longest parade in Southwestern Ontario’ will kick-start a weekend of festivities in Thamesville this coming weekend.
The Thamesville Threshing Fest parade will start at Ferguson Park and wind through town, going along Anne St., Lemuel St. and Main St. and ending up back at the park.
“It is approximately one hour to one and a half hours long. It is the longest parade in Southwestern Ontario,” Thameville Threshing Festival organizers say.
“It’s a great mix of local business floats, organizations, classic cars, local dignitaries, bands and farm equipment.”
