City accepting vendors, parade entrants, sponsors and volunteers for Covington Days

The city of Covington is currently accepting applications for parade participants, arts and craft vendors, sponsor, and volunteers to participate in the annual Covington Days Festival July 19th and 20th. The festival’s parade features approximately 50 entries, including cheer groups, marching bands, child care centers, car clubs, nonprofit groups and commercial businesses. Participation in the parade is free.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 19 and travels south on 180th St. and west on 272nd/Kent Kangley. Staging begins at 9 a.m. in the Real Life Church parking lot and field and ends in the Kohl’s parking lot.

Arts and crafters are typically the highlight of the festival’s vendor marketplace. The festival has a new lower arts and craft vendor fee of $50 for 2014. Arts and craft vendor items for sale must be handmade. Vendors currently registered include wood working, jewelry, quilts, hats, birdhouses and wooden signs.

The city is still looking for cash sponsors for festival entertainment and volunteers, as well as in-kind sponsors for prizes and giveaways. Volunteers sign-ups are available for various shifts during the festival.
