Parade Guidelines

In the staging areas all units MUST leave a lane clear in the middle of the streets for access by emergency vehicles.


The parade marshals will direct your movements.

Please shut off vehicles until your division is ready to march.  It wastes gas, and the sound and exhaust is disruptive.

The Performance Area will be located at Frankford and Knorr
Performers will be allowed up to 3 minutes for their routine at this location.

 Each performance is limited to three minutes - if any group abuses this time limit, they will not be invited back to the parade the following year.
Please limit performances to this location.  Impromptu performances slow the parade, and leave gaps.

Order of march is the latest information as provided by the Parade Committee.
This order of march is subject to change at the discretion of the parade marshals, even on the day of the parade.

The parade starts at 12:00 PM. Units can starts assembling at 10:30 AM.
Please remember the staging areas will be congested with little parking close by.
