5/11 CENTENNIAL PARADE
The City of Winston-Salem and the Winston-Salem Jaycees are proud to present the Winston-Salem Centennial Parade! This uniquely designed parade will be a moving timeline that will take spectators through the past 100 years of Winston-Salem’s history as a unified city.
The parade will be kicked off by a 15 minute flyover of WWII planes at 1:45 over the southern part of the city with the parade beginning at 2:00pm. The parade route will begin at the intersection of Main St. and Walnut St. in Old Salem, travel north on Main to 4th Street, where it will turn west for one block and then turn back south on Liberty St. to end at the Party in the Plaza at Corpening Plaza.
10 floats, each representing a decade have been custom designed and build by local organizations. Vehicles from each decade will be on display carrying Honored Citizens and members of the Junior League of Winston-Salem in fashions from each time period. Other highlights include a 1901 & 1923 Firetruck, Letters From Home ensemble, walking participants representing all 8 wards of the city, and much, much more!
Please join us for this once in a lifetime parade experience as we celebrate our great city!
