Parade Spotters needed for the 75th Annual Persimmon Festival Parade

MITCHELL – It takes a lot of work to put on a parade, and that includes volunteers to assist as parade route spotters.

Spotters will be located where you normally watch the parade with your family and friends. 

Contact the Parade Chairperson Vicky Schlegel at 812-797-7984 in case of an emergency along the route. 

Spotters will keep spectators from moving too close to the vehicle or float, no entrant can throw items from the vehicle or float, pay particular attention to unit spacing, and report any accidents or unit break-downs during the parade. Spotters will need to have a fully charged cell phone.  

Once the parade reaches your location and there are no issues the next volunteer along the route will be watching.   

Vicky Schlegel will provide detailed instructions to the list of volunteers before the parade day, on Saturday, September 24, 2022.  

If you would like to volunteer as a parade spotter call the Mitchell Chamber of Commerce at 812-849-4441 to provide your name and contact information for the volunteer list.
