PAULDING – Every small town enjoys a parade and Paulding is no exception. For a few minutes the towns folk come together on an early summer evening to enjoy the best Paulding has to offer as they march down the street. Using John Paulding Days as the backdrop, the towns folk find their favorite location along one of the tree-lined streets and with a sense of pride they watch and listen as various parts of their community ceremoniously march by.

With the parade theme of “Music Through the Ages” this year’s parade is scheduled to step off at 7 p.m. on Thursday evening. More than 100 units will meander their way through the parade route. Grand marshal for the annual parade is George Carter, chief executive officer of Paulding-Putnam Electric Cooperative. Carter, his wife Debra and their family moved to Paulding from West Virginia nearly 10 years ago.
