The St. Patrick's Day parade is barely over, but local organizers are already looking ahead to the York Labor Day parade.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 2, at Smalls Athletic Field and ending at Kiwanis Lake, the theme of this year's parade is "Labor Protecting America."
Parade officials are seeking groups to participate with a marching unit, float, band, cars, trucks and more, according to parade chairwoman Kittie Hake.
Cash prizes totaling $450 will be awarded to winning entrants, she said.
The parade will follow the early-morning fishing derby at Kiwanis Lake, which is co-sponsored by the York-Adams County Central Labor Council and the City of York.
Registration for the fishing derby begins at 7 a.m. Monday, Sept. 2, followed by an orientation at 7:30 a.m. and fishing from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
There is no cost for registration, said Nancy Stough, fishing derby coordinator.
Children ages 1 through 15 may participate. Trophies will be given in two age categories: 1 through 8 and 9 through 15.
The parade will pass by the young competitors and end at Kiwanis Lake, Stough said.
