Sparta Butterfest Parade • Sunday • 12:30pm
One of the most popular events at our Annual Sparta Butterfest is our gigantic parade on Sunday. Thousands of fans line the parade route for this special event for the entire family.
The Sparta Butterfest parade features area bands, civic organizations, area festivals, dance teams, collector cars and teams of horses.
Another worthy effort during the Sparta Butterfest Parade is the Butterfest Food Drive: The Kiwanis Club and Boys & Girls Club of Sparta will be conducting a food drive for the food pantries of Sparta during the Butterfest parade. Parade goers are asked to brink a non-perishable item(s) to the parade. Since there is always a problem keeping the pantries filled during the summer month the two organizations are asking you for your help to make sure they continue to be will stocked.
Food items that are needed include canned fruit, vegetables, soups, spaghetti sauce, chili, stew, tuna, salmon and other meat products. Dry food items such as macaroni and cheese, noodles, rice, helpers (hamburger, chicken, tuna), pasta, puddings, cake mixes and different kinds of cereal are also needed. Personal items such as razors, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bath soap, etc. are always welcomed. Your participation in this worthwhile project will be appreciated!
