Please note that we must apply to march in the parade, and that not all applicants are accepted due to space considerations.
THEME & DETAILS
This year’s parade title, “Home for the Holidays” designates an Americana theme, offering a big welcome to members of the military and their families. As always, we encourage participants to get creative and have fun with the theme.
To keep the integrity of the parade, participants should plan to march the parade route in uniform. Only uniformed members of the group are allowed to march (no family members). A banner or signage identifying your group is highly recommended.
Due to the route length, children walking in the parade must be 6 years old or older. For groups with children under the age of 13 one adult representative per seven children is required to walk with the group in the parade.
Troops may hand out candy to spectators, but do not stop to distribute items or toss/throw to the crowd.
Check in: 10:00 – 10:30 am
Parade: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Parade route: approximately ½ mile
