Parade Tips and Guidelines
Tips for a Great Day
To help ensure your best parade experience possible, take note of these helpful hints:
- Three announcers’ tents are located along the route. These areas feature additional entertainment elements and amplified sound for spectators’ enjoyment.
- Parking is limited on the day of the parade. Carpool with friends, bike, or even walk to the parade.
- The parade route is lined with grass so bring a chair, open an umbrella, or lay a blanket to enjoy the parade comfortably. (Be sure to familiarize yourself with the Parade Event Marking and Safety Guidelines prior to parade day. Attendees may set up their viewing area starting July 3 at 7 a.m. Items placed prior to this time will be removed and donated.)
- Don’t forget it’s hot out there! To beat the heat, drink plenty of water (one cup every 15-20 minutes) even if you don’t feel thirsty, wear protective clothing and slather on sunscreen.
- Be responsible with your children and keep them safe during the parade. Do not allow kids—or kids at heart—to enter the parade route and approach entries during the event.
- Wear red, white, and blue to celebrate America and display your patriotism. Consider bringing a few decorations to make your viewing location extra-spirited!
