The idea for Biblesta came to Dr. Arthur Carlson in 1957 while attending a cottage prayer meeting. His church was planning a revival meeting, and everyone was praying that the attendance would be good and that many souls would be saved; however he really did not expect that to happen. While on his knees in prayer, he began imagining a parade that would focus people on the greatest book in the world...the Bible. Right then and there he decided the way to tell others about God was with a Bible Story Parade.

The Biblesta Parade consists of floats portraying scriptures from the Bible, walking entries, equestrian units and marching bands playing Christian and patriotic music. Before and after the parade, enjoy gospel music in the city square. A variety of activities including a petting zoo, train rides and inflatables are available to entertain the children. During the evening hours, teenagers and young adults can enjoy the Biblesta After Dark Youth Rally. Food vendors are available throughout the day, and everyone is welcome to stay for the free bean feed at 5:00 p.m. in the city square.
