Willmar Fests Events – newly crowned Junior Royalty will be asked to attend other events throughout the week.  Junior Royalty will receive a list of parades to attend for the remainder of the “reigning” year. Parents will need to provide transportation and supervision for their child. We ask that the parents stay by the float until it moves and also have someone at the end of the parade route to pick up your child once the float gets there.
