Event Description

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the annual parade where local farmers converge on the village of Rockwood at seven o’clock with various pieces of decorated and festively lit farm equipment. It is Ontario’s original and best night-time parade. Floats vary in both size and shape from as small as 6 feet to as large as 20 feet depending on the type of machinery the participant has decided to put on display. Long -time parade participant and organizer Walter Swanston re-iterates “One very unique aspect of this parade is that it is strictly for fun, there is absolutely no advertising, fundraising or fees associated with it. It’s an opportunity for the participants to have some fun while giving back to their community”. This has turned into a huge event drawing well over 10,000 people from all over Ontario. Along with the beautiful show of lights, spectators will have the opportunity to view a range of farming equipment with both antique and modern implements included. Santa Claus along with Mrs. Claus make their grand appearance atop a rather impressive and massive combine. To view the parade from past years and see a sample of the parade floats visit www.rockwoodfarmersparade.org. Included on the website are directions to the village of Rockwood and the parade’s actual route. You can also view the Rockwood Farmers’ Parade on both Youtube and Facebook.
Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the beautiful show of lights uniquely displayed on farm machinery, Rockwood’s very own Farmers’ Parade of Lights. Hope to see you there!
