Remax Alliance At Gilbert Days ParadeOne of Gilbert’s longest traditions was broken Tuesday night as the Town Council voted down public funding for the Gilbert Days Parade.  The Parade that has spanned the length of 3 decades will not take place this November.

When the Gilbert Promotional Corp. lost most of its private funding for the parade due to the downturn in the economy, they turned to public funding and the help of the Gilbert Town Council.  The council turned down the groups request for public funding in a 5-2 vote Tuesday night.  “It was a tough decision for everyone all around,” said George Pettit, town manager.

As a sponsor and participant in the parade since 1994 Remax Alliance Group is saddened by the news of the cancellation.  We enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the community and celebrate the tradition that the parade represented.  However, we look forward to the return of the parade in the future and the prosperity that its return will represent.

If there is a silver lining it is that the Council did vote to fund the Gilbert Days Rodeo.  The Rodeo is a 3 day event attended by up to 5,000 spectators.  For more information on what activities will be available during the Gilbert Days Celebration view the calendar here.
