Celebrating its 7th Anniversary the parade features a unique variety of entertainment groups. The Parade Marshall and Military Parade Marshall will be selected from local nominees. New units include antique fire trucks, a circus wagon with a working music calliope, local dance troops, service clubs, and more.

Music in the Parade includes Drums Corps, Marching Bands, Steel Drum Band, Rock Bands and Country Bands (on flat bed trucks). Many of the music groups park in the down town area after the parade for an olde fashion street dance. The 2018 version of "Parade of Parades" featured over 90 units and is becoming a regional favored of parade goers.
