Benefits of representing Spring Grove...

Create friendships that will last a lifetime and memories that will have you reminiscing for years. This experience comes with a scholarship (for our crowned juniors) as well as the perk of being the guest of honor for many local events! This is an amazing opportunity to meet new people and form friendships you otherwise may not have. It also serves for a great community service experience to add to any application or resume!

Schedule of Parades & Events

With only 7-8 parades and 6 community events, the time commitment is less than ever! We are extremely flexible with schedules, and only want everyone to have the best experience possible! Our parades are close to home, and the month of August is entirely free of any royalty related events! We do ask for prompt communication of any conflicts, but please know these conflicts are expected and will not be held against anyone.
