Parade Theme: Protecting our Youth, Preserving our Future

The Hahira Honey Bee Parade is often referred to as "the largest parade in South Georgia".  While we aren't sure if that is true, we are sure that it is fun for young and old alike!  There are rules that we must adhere to, set by city ordinances, committee discretion, and state laws.  The invitation letter is sent via email (when available) annually to past entries with the rules listed and new entries are always a joy to have.  Below you will find a link to both the rules and the parade application.
