Sheridan Celebrates Myths and Reality with
the 2019 Theme
2019 Sheridan Celebrates event will feature the theme, “Sheridan Celebrates Tall
Tales & True Stories.” Both the Children’s and Grand parades, and the festival,
will be held the last Saturday in September, the 28th. The Committee reviewed several
themes and the chose “Sheridan Celebrates Tall Tales & True Stories” at the
December meeting. Committee members always put a lot of thought into selecting
the annual theme considering the needs of parade entrants, exhibitors and
sponsors, and most importantly striving to create excitement for attendees.
Sheridan Celebrates Committee encourages parade entrants and festival attendees
to rally around the 2019 theme. Learn about the fantastic tall tale characters
and incorporate their traits and exploits into parade entry costuming and
construction. Or choose your favorite contemporary hero and pattern an entry
after them: think inventors, political leaders, business trailblazers, science
innovators, dedicated activists or accomplished athletes. Tara Beiter-Fluhr,
Sheridan Celebrates Mayor and Committee Chair, commented, “Tall tales thrill us
with larger-than-life characters and events. True stories inspire us with what
people can achieve in the real world. The 2019 theme gives participants the
chance to follow either path – to celebrate what is outlandish or what is
amazing and true.” Plan now so that you are prepared for participation in
either, or both, the Children’s and Grand Parade.
Local business owners are encouraged to become
sponsors and have exhibitor booths at the Saturday, September 28 festival. For
