Eugene Has a Parade, and It’s EUG!

EUG Parade 2018 Spinnin Our Wheels Logo

This Year's Theme

Take the 2018 theme phrase and tailor it to your entry! Spinnin’ Our Wheels is open to many interpretations. Will it go round in circles? Show how you roll with humor, advocacy, or collaboration! If you “move” the judges, you’ll be acknowledged for your spin.


Pet Promenade

Pets of all sizes and their humans can strut their stuff in the Pet Promenade at the beginning of The EUG Parade route, dispersing at Broadway and Charnelton.


NOTE: All animals must be on leashes or other method of containment for the safety of pets, participants and audience members.
