We proudly march every year in Dixon's Memorial Day Parade,
to honor our nation's veterans. After the 10am parade, we join in an outdoor
service at Oakwood Cemetery along with hundreds of community members,
notable speakers, dignitaries, and representatives
from all branches of the military.

The Dixon Municipal Band heads up the Annual Petunia Festival Parade by
playing Patriotic marching songs all along the parade route. Thousands of
visitors come to Dixon each year to watch the parade, enjoy the carnival and to
partake of the three stages of entertainment and the large variety of food and
drinks along the Rock River in Page Park. The Festival runs each year around
the 1st week of July over the fourth of July Holiday.
