The Pickerington Lions Club is busy making plans for its 62nd annual Labor Day parade and fish fry in downtown Pickerington.
The parade will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 6, while the fish fry begins at 11 a.m. at Victory Park and will last until the fish runs out around 4 p.m. Approximately 600 pounds of fish will be fried.
The theme of the parade isCelebrating 100 Years with the Boy Scouts in honor of the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouts of America.
All five Boy Scout Troops in Pickerington will choose a representative from their troop to serve as a shared grand marshall for the parade.
Lineup for the parade begins at 8 a.m. at Pickerington Central High School. Trophies will be given to the best-looking entries, based upon overall appearance and attention to theme. To register for the parade, call Bernie Hatem at (614) 837-6544.
As always, there will be a big raffle held at the end of the fish fry. The Grand Prize will be a 50-50 split of the cash proceeds. Other prizes are: a $500 ladys genuine multi-colored Sapphire ring, donated by Edward Warren Jewelers; a $150 gift certificate for services at Hermann & Henry Eyecare; $100 in gift cards to Butchs Italian Café, donated by Coffee Man Beverages; and $100 in Gift cards to Rule (3).
Entertainment at the fish fry will be provided by DJ Chuck Steel.
