The Johnson County Old Settlers Parade is the largest parade in the state of Kansas. It has an average of 160 entries, including 16 area High School and Middle School bands, numerous club and organization entries and several commercial floats. The parade is attended by between 65,000 and 75,000 people. Jadon’s Hope Foundation entered a float themed “Dancing in the Rain”.
The day was a perfect sunny 70 degrees. JHF supporters walked with the float while SMA warriors Jadon, Arturo, and Amira road along. 3,000 SMA fact cards and over 100 t-shirts were handed out to the crowd. It was a perfect day.
A big giant THANK YOU to all the walkers and riders who helped spread SMA awareness.
