The 80th Annual Daffodil Festival Parade
April 13th, 2013
2013 marks the 80th Annual Daffodil Festival. Started in 1934 as
a tribute to the Puyallup Valley’s flower industry, the Festival has grown to an
annual event viewed by thousands. The Festival's Grand Floral Parade
travels through the cities of Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner and
Orting, all in one day. Communities from all over Washington, Oregon and
British Columbia, Canada, also participate in the parade. A notable annual
participant in the parade every year is Sumner's own Sumner High School
Marching Band, which has won many awards and represented the seven state Northwest
region in the 1998 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.
Starting at 2:30 p.m.
The Daffodil Festival is not just a parade - it is so much more. The
Festival gives all of us the opportunity to get involved in our community, to
help guide our youth and show them that we do care.
