2014 Convoy Community Days - "Winning State Of Mind"

The Convoy Community Days committee has selected the 2014 State Champion Crestview Knights Basketball team to be the Grand Marshals of the Convoy Community Days parade this year. The parade will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 2:00pm in Convoy. Line up starts at 1:00 pm at Edgewood park.

This year's Grand Marshals won Crestview's first OHSAA boys basketball state championship in school history by a final score of 71-42 against Louisville St. Thomas Aquinas. The 2014 Team was undefeated and AP number one ranked. This team is the first Division IV team since New Knoxville in 2008 to finish the season undefeated.

Convoy Community Days will only be one day this year - Saturday, September 27, 2014. Look for the day to kick off bright and early 7 am at Edgewood Park for the Fireman's Pancake & Sausage Breakfast. Fill your bellies and head downtown for a full day of Basket Bingo, a parade, a clown show, Convoy's Got Talent, Ultimate Frisbee, a car show, Lion's Bingo, a Dead Sprint, a downtown movie, Kiddy Tractor Pulls, kids games downtown, Marks Ark, a Reverse Raffle, and a Parking Lot Dance! Local vendors will be located downtown throughout the day. Please come and support your community. Bring your friends and family! We hope to see you there!

Schedule of events will be posted throughout the county and can be located at www.villageofconvoy.com. If you are interested in participating in the event as a vendor or an entry in the parade, please e-mail villageofconvoy@bright.net.
