Callithumpian 2015

A large crowd enjoyed the 2015 Callithumpain Parade as it snaked its way through beautiful downtown Decatur.  This event brings several thousand people to Decatur to enjoy the evening.

The Decatur Callithumpian Committee named Kenny Ketzler as grand marshal of the 2015 Callithumpian Parade. 

The 2015 edition of the parade included ten competing band, nine floats, many commercial entries and numerous politicians. Riders from the Indiana Patriot Guard joined the parade for the third time this year.
