Each year Matthys Baseball, Softball and T-Ball players and parents are invited to join the park in two Parades.
First is the park opening day parade, Matthys teams meet in uniforms at the park and drive through the area streets to celebrate the beginning of the new season.
On Memorial Day we join the annual West Side Parade. Meeting place is assigned by the parade committee, usually on Summitt Drive across the street from Planet Fitness. Parade Route is Ford Street ending at Olive Street. Parents are asked to join in and decorate their vehicles in Red, White and Blue as we honor our Military.
