Powersports machines, such as side-by-sides, four wheelers, and quad bikes, are often on display in parades. For those unfamiliar with this activity, here is the scoop. Well-organized ATV parades follow a pre-approved route, and are typically held to celebrate the joys of trailblazing or an upcoming holiday.
Budding and seasoned ATVers hoping to liven things up a bit this year may be able to do so by participating in one of the following UTV parades in 2022.
Detroit July Golf Cart & ATV Parade
On July 2nd, citizens in Detroit, Oregon are gathering at 3:00 PM to participate in a free powersports machine parade.
