Want to take part in the 2023 Marion Popcorn Parade? It steps off at 6:00pm on Thursday, September 7, 2023. But to take part, you must submit an application before the deadlines.
Those wanting to enter a float in the parade must apply no later than August 5, 2023. All applicants will be notified of their status no later than August 12, 2023.
The deadline for non-float entries will be August 25, 2023. In order to have the lineup completed and your position in the parade mailed in time, entries will not be accepted after the August 25th deadline.
The Main Stage of the 42nd Annual Marion Popcorn will again feature three nights of free live entertainment, including a high-energy Thursday Popcorn Block Party, a Country artist with 16 #1 hits on Friday, and closes out on Saturday with some Hard Southern Rockers from Kentucky visiting before their September LP release and European Tour, on September 7-8-9 in downtown Marion, Ohio.
