Seeing nominations for 2023 Cobblestone Parade Grand Marshal

​Summer would not be complete without the Annual Cobblestone Festival! Cobblestone will run from Thursday, August 24th through Sunday, August 27th this year. The Falls City Chamber & Main Street is thrilled to announce the returning of Sam’s Amusements for rides and games on Friday through Sunday. In addition to the carnival, car show, vendors, and other activities you will find the time-honored parade scheduled for Saturday, the 26th at 11am.  Like past years, it will travel from Pioneer Park, down 20th street to Harlan, then south to 14th Street.

​The theme this year is “Game Night?”  We are hoping to see lots of creative floats involving board or card games. Any business, organization or individuals are welcome to participate in the parade and in the decorating contest by following the theme.  

​Pre-registration for the parade is encouraged, but not required. It just helps the organizers plan enough space for the entries. To pre-register, email Amber Holle with the Falls City Chamber & Main Street at  Include the name of entity and the type of entry (car/truck, float, large machinery, emergency vehicle, horse, etc.)

Nominations are now being accepted for the position of grand marshal of the 2023 Cobblestone Parade! The honor is comparable to a life-time achievement award.

Nominees can be individuals or couples who have contributed substantially to the betterment of the Falls City community. Letters of nomination should be as detailed as possible, listing all the reasons why the nominee should be considered.
