This year’s CarmelFest Parade will feature a giant cold-air filled balloon “Elmo”. He will be riding on top of a red, white and blue hat and is approximately thirty feet high. Elmo will move along the parade route to the sound of Sesame Street music. According to Parade Chair, Peggy Powell, “We are thrilled to have this new addition in the CarmelFest parade. We have always wanted a jumbo-balloon and now we have one!”
The CarmelFest 4th of July Parade starts at 10:30 a.m. at AAA Way and Carmel Drive, proceeds west to Range Line Road, then turns north to Main Street, and ends at Carmel High School.
