Leavenworth Road parade to be Sunday, Sept. 21

The 29th annual Leavenworth Road parade will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21.

The parade route starts at 72nd and Leavenworth Road and continues to 51st and Leavenworth Road. Some of the walkers and marchers will join the parade near 64th Street.

“It’s going to be nice weather, decent temperatures, sunshine, and no rain. Perfect parade weather,” said Lou Braswell, executive director of the Leavenworth Road Association.

The parade will include Washington, Wyandotte and Schlagle high school bands, four horse units, antique cars and a total of 50 entries, Braswell said.

As in last year’s parade, the Kansas City Kansas Community College men’s basketball team is planning to dribble down Leavenworth Road, shooting basketballs at a goal in the back of a truck, she said.

The judges’ stand will be located in front of Welborn Elementary School.

This year, Unified Government employees will sponsor a fundraiser for United Way before the parade at Sunset Plaza, 6000 Leavenworth Road, she said. A children’s bounce house and craft booths are planned.
