The Gravelrama® Parade

For years and years we have been blessed with an amazing community and local police department. They are a huge part of our ever growing Gravelrama® family. They welcome our thousands of fans every year and some of the local businesses even offer discounts to our fans. What better way to show our thanks and appreciation than to have a parade honoring the history of Gravelrama® and our hometown, The Village of Cleves, OH. There are floats with race cars and cool, creative decorations, monster trucks, Jr. racers, big lifted Jeeps and Trucks, fire trucks, candy and treats for the kids, local high school spirit and the list goes on and on. It is an amazing atmosphere with amazing people which when combined turns in to an amazing experience. Grab the kids and the family to come experience all that the Gravelrama® Parade has to offer but don’t forget your bags and pillow cases for the candy!!

The Gravelrama® Party

Once we’ve finished parading around and tooting our horns we invite everyone back to the grounds for some fun. There is food and drinks for sale, a horseshoe tournament and even a live band! Call us old fashioned but we like to start out our race weekend right. For us, the best way to do that is hanging out with friends and family while enjoying ice cold beers and good music.
