Big Top Parade returns Saturday, June 8

Each summer, the Baraboo Area honors its heritage by holding an old-fashioned circus parade on the downtown streets. In 2024 the Big Top Parade will blast off – err, step off – at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 8. This year’s parade will adopt Circus World’s space-age “Blast Off” theme.

Circus World animals and historic wagons will be featured in the hourlong parade, alongside marching bands and community floats.

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.
