Celebrate Gilbert Days


Celebrate with the Town of Gilbert this week as we enjoy the 2017 GILBERT DAYS!

Here are a few of the events that will be taking place this week for the entire family to participate in.

The Gilbert Days parade presented by Dignity Health and the Gilbert Half marathon, is a long tradition of being the premiere event for Gilbert Days. The parade is a celebration of our Town’s heritage and involves many local schools, businesses, non-profit organizations, and special interest groups.

2017 Parade Theme: #GILBERTKINDNESS

Parade Line up

All parade entries are welcome to decorate their float and/or parade entry to show how their organization supports Kindness in the community.  This year we want groups to think about the items they had out along the parade route. Smiles, high fives and kind words will certainly go further then passing out candy! Be creative!  Entries will be judged by the announcers along the parade route and winners will receive a free parade entry for the 2018 Gilbert Days Parade.
