Pan-O-Prog Grand Parade

Pan-O-Prog is celebrating 50 years this summer the week of July 4 - July 10. Imperial will be participating in the Pan-O-Prog Parade on Saturday July 9th. This parade is regarded as one of the "very best" in Minnesota. With approximately 20,000 people along the parade route, this is an awesome way to make a statement and let people in our community know who we are.

The parade will last approximately 2 hours and begins at 5:30. The parade starts at the corner of Holyoke Avenue and 210th Street and travels all the way to Heritage Drive, ending at Iberia Avenue (approximately 1 mile). Imperial employees and their families will need to arrive prior to 5:30 for the parade line-up. Once the time has been determined we will let everyone know.

If you want to participate in the parade you must sign up by June 24th. This will allow us to have enough t-shirts, refreshments, and treats for everyone. If you want to participate you can sign up in the breakrooms at Cedar, Corporate, Hamburg, and Heron. You can also send an e-mail to, tweet at us, or send us a Facebook message. The message should include your name and how many family members will be joining you.

Throughout the week Pan-O-Prog also puts on events that include fireworks, a carnival, cruise night, and many more! For more information on all the events you can reference Pan-O-Prog's website at
