A new tradition will begin in the Shawnee Neighborhood this Saturday, October 17th when the “Shawnee Fall Festival Celebration of Community” gets underway. A Motorcade Parade will highlight the fun and entertainment of the event as a show of community pride.

“The Shawnee neighborhood is making great strides in transforming this area into a growing community that takes pride in itself,” says Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5). “I hope everyone will come out and have fun.”

The Shawnee Fall Festival will get underway at French Plaza at Amy and Market Street from 12:00pm to 5:00pm rain or shine.

A Motorcade Parade sponsored by the Shawnee Weed and Seed program will take place from Christ the King Church parking lot at 44th and Broadway to the French Plaza. Any group, club or organization is encouraged to come out and show their pride with signs to decorate a car or truck.

The parade will line up at 1:00pm and then make its way through the Shawnee Neighborhood.

“The Shawnee Weed and Seed Committee has worked had to make this parade symbolic of the togetherness of this community,” says Hamilton.

At the festival, entertainment will be provided by Lampton Angels and Oak and Acorn Seniors dancers. James Taylor, a chainsaw sculptor will sculpt a tree stump. There will also be a Corn Hole Tournament, Bingo, inflatables for the kids, medical screenings and food sales to benefit the Shawnee Neighborhood Association.
