The Fort Wayne Newspapers Three Rivers Festival has selected "Made Here" as the theme for the Lutheran Health Network Parade, which will kick off the first weekend of the event at 9:45 a.m. July 13.
The 45th annual TRF will run July 12-20 in Headwaters Park and a few other locations around town.
The festival partnered with the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership's Made Here campaign on the parade theme, a festival news release said. The campaign is designed to develop, attract and retain talent in northeast Indiana, in part by highlighting the many positive aspects of living here.
Parade entrants are invited to create floats representing their interpretation of the Made Here theme. Applications can be downloaded at the Three Rivers Festival website, www.threeriversfestival.org, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for parade application submission is April 30.
