With the annual 82nd annual Chelsea Community Fair Parade about two weeks away, have you contacted the Chelsea Area Fire Authority for a float permit?
This year’s parade will take place Saturday, Aug. 24 beginning at 1 p.m.
Participants may begin lining up no earlier than 10 a.m.
Here is everything you need to know to participate in this wonderful tradition. (And be sure you bring lots of candy to toss to the thousands of folks who line the parade route all the way to the fairgrounds.)
