Please don't throw candy or other items. To protect the smallest parade spectators from injury, we can't allow it. If you would like to hand out candy or other items, please do so while keeping up with your moving parade entry.
Drivers and participants - be safe and aware of people and vehicles around you. Parade lineup is a busy time with many vehicles dropping off parade participants and many parade participants (including young children) waiting for the parade to begin. Drive slowly and carefully, please.
Please keep close to the entry in front of you during the parade. Keep moving with the parade to eliminate long, boring gaps between entries.
Line-up time that morning begins at 9 a.m., and everyone must be in place by 10 a.m.
NEW STREET CLOSURE TIME: Streets around the parade will start closing at 10 a.m. (which means you must be at your line-up location by 10 a.m.).
During the Parade
The parade will begin moving forward at 10:45 a.m.
The parade will step onto Main Street at 10:45 a.m. and pause at Holly Springs Road to allow all units to close the gaps. The parade will resume from Holly Springs Road for the official start at 11 a.m.
At the End of the Parade
At the parade's end (on Main Street at the Rogers Street intersection), your entry will either:
