The Saturday Parade of the Urbanna Oyster Festival has become the focal point of the weekend. It has grown from an event featuring antique cars and floats to a parade encompassing a large Shriner's contingency, numerous Marching Bands and beauty queens and their courts from across the state.
Many grand marshals have led the parade, including state officials, beauty queens, and lately, community leaders whom the Urbanna Oyster Festival Foundation wishes to honor.
Key participants in the parade are the Urbanna Oyster Festival Queen and Little Miss Spat, Khedive Temple Shriner’s ,the Williamsburg Field Musick Fifes & Drums and the U.S. Army Strolling Dixie Band.
Many businesses and civic organizations from Middlesex and surrounding counties prepare floats and decorate automobiles for the viewing pleasure of the Oyster Festival visitors.
All units pass by the judges' reviewing stand and awards are presented at the parade's conclusion. This exciting parade begins at 2:00 PM and is one that should not be missed.
