SummerFest 2012 Grand Parade will be Marshaled by the USAF

The Ankeny Summerfest Grand Parade will take place on Saturday, July 14th 2012. The Grand Parade is one of the premier events of Summerfest and the Summerfest and Parade Committees are looking forward to continuing the great traditions while making enhancements to make the parade even more enjoyable for all while maintaining the focus on safety.
 The Grand Parade Committee is looking for additional volunteers to serve as part of the core planning group for the Grand Parade and to help initiate and implement improvements for the event. The time commitment is primarily monthly meetings March through June and additional time in the days leading up to and during the Grand Parade. If you have an interest in serving on the parade committee or have special skills you would be willing to offer the Parade Committee, please contact the Parade Chair to get involved by e-mailing your interest to Summerfest at
We are happy to report that we have selected the United States Air Force to serve as Summerfest Parade Marshalls during the parade and along the parade route. The Marshalls are focused on ensuring the parade route is safe for participants and spectators as well as serving as the eyes on the route for the Parade Committee and safety personnel.
