The Jr. Lilac Parade is a treasured, long-standing tradition in Spokane. In fact, our next parade will be the 68th annual event! Each spring, our community comes together in downtown Spokane to celebrate our children. You’ll see elementary and middle school bands and drill units, youth organizations, and other clubs. You might even see some of our local mascot celebrities, such as Butch, Swoop, and Spike! Many of our local city and county officials, as well as area businesses, join in the fun. It’s an event you don’t want to miss!
