Community Day Parade
Be a part of your community’s history as we kick off Aston Township Community Day. We will begin the day with the annual parade from Neumann University beginning at 9:00 am and proceed south on Concord Road where it will be joined by the bike contest participants at the Big Lots Store parking lot and continue south on Concord Road to the Community Center where the Community Day festivities and the Aston Business Expo will begin. Any business or community group in Aston Township is invited to participate in the parade. Community Day Parade (not the bike contest) line up begins at 8:00 am at Neumann University (Concord Road entrance). Any persons or groups wishing to participate in the parade must pre-register with parade coordinator Nancy Bowden.
Kids in three age groups, 0 to 3, 4 to 7 and 8 to 12, can participate in the parade by decorating their bikes, wagons and strollers and riding along the parade route for all to see.
Themed Decorating Contest
Each year a theme is selected for the parade. Use your creativity powers to decorate your “ride” to the theme. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorations in each age group. There will also be a Bike Safety Rodeo prior to the parade. Whether you’re fast or slow and steady you can participate in the Safety Rodeo which includes; Bicycle Safety Inspection; Bicycle Safety Talk; Obstacle Course; Goody Bags! Bike will join the parade from Big Lots to the Community Center.
Don’t Forget Your Helmet sponsored by the Aston Business Association & Neumann University.
