Hey everyone!!!

The Pride Parade is THIS Saturday – whoo-hoo!!!!!

As Team Captain I will register our team early (by 9:30am)

All participants must be there by 11am.  Here are drop off and pick up points for drivers as no one will be allowed in the parade prep area

Parade registration drop off is via

 76 Avenue. From 76 Ave: ➔ Turn NORTH on 106 St ➔ Turn WEST onto UNIVERSITY AVE From here, the Registration Team will direct you to your zone and you will be headed in the right direction!

We start marching (and dancing and having fun)  at 11:30ish am!!

We should be done marching by 12:45pm.  Please note a couple of important items regarding drop offs and leaving the area.

Parade Dispersal - Walking Entries ALL walking entries will be directed EAST on 86 Ave toward Gateway Blvd Stopping in the middle of the street affects the efficient clearing and holds up the entire parade! IF you are meeting friends or family at the end of the parade please plan to meet them in Light Horse Park. DO NOT socialize in the street or on the sidewalks at the dispersal area.

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST


-             Wear a wristband to identifying their participation in the parade and their alignment with an entry.  There will be volunteers at the beginning of the Parade Route checking to ensure that all  participants are wearing wristbands.  If you are not wearing you wristband you will not be permitted to march.

-          Stay either on the road or in the vehicle for the duration of the parade - JUMPING on and off a float is strictly prohibited

 

-          Pass swag or other goods to spectators - do NOT throw things into the crowd as it encourages people to run into the street

 

-          Alcohol and drugs are strictly prohibited in the parade along the parade route or in the staging area

-          Only the organization that is registered with the Parade is permitted to advertise in the parade.

 

Here are all the rules for the parade.  PLEASE REVIEW THEM BEFORE SATURDAY.
