There's nothing quite like a hometown parade. Campbell has perfected this.
The 15th annual Bunnies & Bonnets Parade takes place March 30 at noon in downtown Campbell and participation is open to everyone and free (for non-commercial entities).
"We want to let people know we have a downtown," says event organizer Sally Howe. "It’s such a good community feeling kind of thing."
The event takes place the same day as the Campbell Kiwanis Club's 33rd annual Eggstravaganza Easter Egg Hunt at the Campbell Community Center, 10:30 a.m. sharp, which in the past has attracted thousands of young egg hunters (2 to-12-years-old) to its fields.
"We’re not only celebrating that the next day is Easter but celebrating our neighborhoods," Howe says. "It brings the community together. I personally enjoy it so much. Its fun to see. 'That’s the scout troop!' 'And look at those moms walking.' It really is warm and fuzzy."
In 2012, there were about 25 local groups that participated, including schools, businesses and non-profits. The day's event will include marching bands, baton dancers, classic cars, floats, chalk drawing on the street and more.
For those interested in participating in the parade, please fill out the attached form and either email or drop off with Sally Howe, email@example.com or the Campbell Express office at 334 E. Campbell Ave.
