Dear Friends and families,

Soon it will be time again to make plans to participate in the

Chief Joseph Days Junior Parade


The CJD Junior Parade is always a big crowd pleaser on Friday morning, July 30, 2022 when over a hundred youngsters – from infants to teens – dressed up in all kinds of costumes to entertain Chief Joseph Days’ crowds.

The CJD Junior Parade lineup starts at the Indian Lodge Motel at 9:00 a.m. and heads north down Main Street at 10 a.m.
The top three places win cash prizes, donated by Mr. timber Inc., in seven (7) categories, while the grande prize entry will win a basketball hoop donated by Coca Cola Distributing.
All the kids in the parade receive a free ice cream cone from R&R Dive-In.


On Site Registration behind the Indian Lodge at 9 a.m. the morning of the parade.
