The Pontiac Area Chamber has run the Threshermen’s Parade for more than 55 years on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Each year 10,000 to 15,000 people line the streets of downtown Pontiac to watch the parade, with favorites including the Pontiac Township High School Marching Band, the South Shore Drill Team, various Shriner club cars and, of course, many varieties of tractors!

The 2018 parade included over 150 entries featuring the theme “Honoring Our Farmers.” Check back for next year’s theme and registration/sponsorship information in 2019!
