There's a kiddie parade that'll be walking in the big parade. They're float number 7.

According to the City of Rice website, there are 44 floats in the parade. City officials were considering whether to have a parade this year after the Rice Fun Day committee dissolved.

According to WJON, the town's mayor, Brian Skroch, asked his staff to organize the parade this year in order but the hope is that another organization will step in and run it next year.

If you're planning on attending the parade, you'll also be able to see a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The 'Wall That Heals' is at Rice Elementary School from now through August 22.

Rice Elementary School is located at 200 NE 3rd Avenue in Rice.
