Hearts of Gold Parade

The Hearts of Gold Parade kicks off on Friday, September 22nd, at 7:30 p.m. following the Lions Club Bed Races. The Hearts of Gold Parade has been a staple of Valleyfest since the first year in 1990. It continues to recognize those in the Spokane Valley who give back to the community and their ‘hearts of gold.’ Staging for the evening parade is at the New Life Church on East Sprague Avenue near University Road and continues east to disband at the Opportunity Shopping Center.

Sprague Avenue will be closed between Pines Road and University Road at 6:00 p.m. to accommodate the parade. Plan accordingly to find the premier parade viewing location! Watch a wide variety of entries: animals, custom and classic cars, floats, bands, and clowns. Keep your eyes open for the Spokane Valley Royalty and the unveiling of the Spokane Valley Hearts of Gold Float.

Before the parade, catch the preparade entertainment, 3rd annual Lions Club Bed Races, or eat dinner and support local businesses on Sprague Avenue.
