Wishes Princess Parties is excited to have our magical characters join in the celebration of community at Draper Days Grand Parade! Draper Days is Draper City’s annual festival celebrating community and its history. The Draper Days Parade will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2017. The parade starts promptly at 9 a.m. and runs for approximately two hours.
The road between 13800 South and Old English Road on Fort Street will be entirely closed at 6:45 a.m., along with Stokes Avenue from 13400 South to 13800 South. The rest of Fort Street will be closed with no access after 8:15 a.m. The timing on when road closures will end is not exact, but Stokes will likely open around 10:00 AM, along with 300 East from 134th and 138th. Fort will be open as soon as the parade is over, usually around 11 a.m.
The parade starts at the corner of Stokes Avenue and Fort Street and travels north on Fort Street and ends at the intersection of Fort Street and Pioneer. Please note: The parade will no longer go around the Draper Historic Park. This is Draper’s largest parade and thousands of people attend this great community event! Parade Route Map (PDF)
Families can begin lining both sides of the parade route early Saturday morning. We are excited to have various announcers throughout the parade route this year to keep you informed of the participants so keep an eye out for an announcer station!
There are approximately 100 participants in the parade each year, consisting of beauty queens from our surrounding cities, vibrant and interactive floats, marching bands, local businesses, drill and dance teams, our own Draper City Council members, Draper City Mayor, and our honorable Grand Marshal! Don’t forget your chairs, camera, sunscreen and water bottles
