bandwagon in Big Top Parade

Big Top Parade returns Saturday, June 24

Each summer, the Baraboo Area honors its heritage by holding an old-fashioned circus parade on the downtown streets. In 2023 the Big Top Parade will step off at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 24.

Circus World animals and historic wagons will be featured in the hourlong parade, alongside marching bands and community floats. As always, the parade theme will follow that of Circus World’s big top show, which this summer will be Western.

The parade will highlight a weekend full of circus-themed fun, including big top shows at Circus World and events at the Al. Ringling Theatre.

99.7 MAX FM will stream its pre-parade show at 10 a.m., followed by the parade at 11 a.m., on TV43 and Cable 10 as well as on Facebook.
