July 8

Gort Wayne, Indiana – One thing the past couple of years has taught us is that we are definitely ‘Better Together’. After a two year hiatus, the Three Rivers Festival is thrilled to be bringing the Parade back this year and have the opportunity to celebrate our City, Patrons, Partners, and Neighbors! We are all better when we come together and the Three Rivers Festival is ready to celebrate that!
