(ABC 6 News) - Clear your weekend plans because Rochesterfest is back and sporting the same in-person parade feel we all have been missing.

After a tiresome year, it was decided this weekend's theme is  "Let's Reconnect". This year’s Rochesterfest runs from June 19 through June 27 and features many classic events, including Breakfast on the Farm and the Million Dollar Hole in One golf shootout. 

A few new events this year include two 5k runs, including the nighttime run called the Black Light Bubbler with proceeds going towards non-profits.

"You know we've had to shift quite a bit at the beginning of May from what we were planning but we felt that that was a necessary shift so we kind of put that on our shoulders to do so cause we thought that we need to get it as back to close to normal Rochesterfest as possible cause that's what our community deserves," said Rochesterfest Executive Director Brandon Helgeson.

This year’s parade is scheduled for June 26 at 2 p.m. For more information and schedule of events, click here.
