Dillsboro Easter Parade and Drive, Saturday, April 3.
Join us for the first event of 2021, let’s get the MINIs out to play!! Saturday, April 3, we’ll have lunch in Dillsboro, decorate our cars for the Easter parade, then have a short scenic cruise along the Tuckasegee River over to Sylva for an ice cream social at the Sonic. This will be a safely social event, mostly outside and an opportunity to have some fun. See details below. Limited to 20 cars to comply with current NC restrictions. Please sign up by April 1 so we can let Foragers and the parade coordinator know how many cars we expect. Weather permitting.

12:00 Lunch in Dillsboro – Park in Forager’s Canteen parking lot, or along the gravel road past the Tavern at the end of Dills Street, see map below. Walk to Foragers Canteen, they have outdoor seating and takeout. If you prefer, you can go over to Haywood Smokehouse (limited outdoor tables for 2), Front Street Takeout (salads and sandwiches) or one of the other new restaurants in town. We cannot make reservations at Foragers (due to it being an event weekend), and current rules do not allow putting large tables together inside or outside. We’ll eat in groups of 4-6 as you are comfortable. Limited indoor dining is available for those comfortable with that. Bring your chairs in case there isn’t enough seating so you can get takeout to eat near the cars.

1:00- 2:00 – Decorate the cars, have social time, take photos, show off your hats. There is an Easter Hat competition and you can register for it during this time. Prizes are being awarded if you wish to stay for the awards.

2:00 Easter Parade. We’ll line up the MINIs and take our place in the parade. The town of Dillsboro requests masks be worn if walking downtown, or walking in the parade. Masks are not required if you are in your car in the parade. After the parade, we will reassemble back in the parking area to undecorate.

2:30-ish – We’ll lead a 25-minute drive along the Tuckasegee River over to Sylva to Sonic

3:00 ish – Ice Cream Social in the outdoor seating area at Sonic.

Come for the whole event, come for just the parade and drive, or just meet us for the ice cream social. Whatever part of the day you can join us, we want to see you!
