Young children get your costumes and float decorations ready for the big day. Floats can be wagons, tricycles, or anything that moves. Festivities begin at 11:30 A. M.

And all children will want  to have a chance to be in royalty. We’ll draw for the title of  King and Queen. and announce the winners next week. BE SURE TO COMPLETE an entry form and place it in the box in the narthex for each child ages 5-10 years old.
