The Walleye Festival weekend marks the beginning of the busy summer season and Port Clinton kicks it off with our Main Street Port Clinton Walleye Festival and family friendly events. This year’s Walleye Festival Grande Parade promises to be better than ever with exciting talent and entertainment. The Grande Parade will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 26. This year’s new and improved parade route, brings spectators even closer to the Walleye Festival and through the center of historic downtown. The Grande Parade begins at the Port Clinton High School and heads west on 10th Street, north on Madison, east on Perry Street, then south on Jefferson Street back to the High School.
