The annual parade, which kicks off the 80th annual Saline Community Fair, will be held at 6:30 p.m., Sept. 1. The parade isn’t returning to Michigan Avenue.

“You can’t go from August to the state championship game,” said Palka, who is 35-6 since becoming football coach and assistant athletic director/high school principal in 2012.
