The parade will begin and end at the Green County Fairgrounds,
on the same streets as in the past.

near Monroe Medical, the White Block Building, and a new area
by Goetz Theatre.
As in the past, the Children’s Parade
on Friday, September 14 will begin near the Monroe Middle
School and go toward Turner Hall. The route will then turn
left on 17th Avenue, turn right onto 11th Street by Goetz
Theatre, left on 18th Avenue for two blocks, left on 9th Street
toward Stop N Go, and then left on 16th Avenue where it will
go on the west side of the downtown square and return toward
