Downtown Bend has held some fun and grand parades in the past, and this Sunday’s "Parade of Olympians" will be extra special for many reasons. 

 

The fevered pitch of the community's support for Ashton Eaton's quest of Olympic gold sparked a long-overdue idea: we need to show Eaton how proud we are of him and all Olympians in Central Oregon.  And that's how the "Parade of Olympians" was created.

 

This Sunday, not only will Ashton Eaton and his family be the guest of honor, but there will be at least 13 other Olympians, past, present, and even a Special Olympian who will also be honored and walk in the parade.

 

The parade will also feature music from local bands and Ashton's alumni high school, the Mountain View Cheer, Dance Team and Marching Band; the U of O Duck,  as well as many other fun entrants.

 

There will be a "fun run" and autograph event after the parade.  Everything begins at 1p.m. Sunday in downtown Bend.
