HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - There won’t be a parade this year during Adams County Fairfest.

Fair officials posted on its Facebook page on Wednesday that due to a lack of entries that event was canceled. The post has since been taken down due to attacking comments regarding the decision.

The last time Fairfest was able to host a parade in downtown Hastings was in 2019.

The parade took a hit due to COVID in 2020 and lack of entries in 2021 led to its cancellation.

Fairfest officials said it was a very hard decision for the board to make, but they hope to get community input to be able to have something in the future.

Adams County Agricultural Society President Scott Schneider shared this message on Friday regarding the parade’s cancellation.

Fairfest runs from July 13- July 17. More information can be found HERE.
