Poway Rotary Parade set for Sept. 10

The Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps announced that the Palomar Health Presents the 2022 Poway Rotary Parade is scheduled for Sept. 10. The parade start time is scheduled for 9 a.m. and more than 100 entrants are expected.  

This year’s theme is “We Are Family.”

The grand marshal is former San Diego Charger Cory Withrow. Withrow played with the team from 2006 to 2008. He is the owner of King’s Craft Coffee Co. in Poway.

In addition to parade favorites and regular entrants such as classic cars and horses, this year’s event will include a pet parade. In the first ever inclusion, Rotarians are eager to invite family and friends to participate in the parade with their lovable furry friends. There will be a contest for most unique pet, best dressed pet, and best float with a pet in it.

The Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps has hosted the parade since 2013.
