The event starts at 10 a.m. and the parade usually kicks off at noon each year with attractions that represent the local area businesses, services, and more. There are art exhibits and displays, as well as several different kid’s activities. Watch your children smile as they play on balloon rides, ride on a pony, and take part in many hands on activities and contests. The festival also features entertainment, food stalls, and live local acts.

The 2015 parade button has arrived and can be purchased at Raley’s Petaluma, Petaluma Market, Aqus Cafe, Lombari’s BBQ and The Petaluma Visitors Center. Buy one for the entire family. They are a fun wearable collectible that shows your support of the parade. Participating businesses will be giving discounts to wearers of the badge the weeks of April 18th – 26th. Businesses who wish to participate get free advertisement space on the PDA’s website.
