Poway Days Parade, new festival coming Saturday

A parade and community fair on Saturday will kick off three weekends of Poway Days activities.

The 53rd annual Poway Days Parade will start at 9 a.m. Saturday on the south side of Poway Road. An estimated 100-plus entries are expected, including all five Poway Unified School District marching bands, dozens of school, veterans and civic groups, pageant winners, classic cars and equestrian units. The parade will begin at Pomerado Road and head east to its conclusion on Bowron Road. The reviewing stand will be near the Poway Library.

This year’s theme is “Happiness is Helping Others.” The grand marshal is Poway resident Phil Harris, founder of Friends & Family Community Connection.

There will be announcers at three locations along the parade route. They will be veteran San Diego radio broadcasters Sam Bass and Dave Mason, Channel 10News meteorologist Megan Perry and KSON radio hosts Greg Raneiri.
