The Top 4 Tips Parade Participants Must Know

  • 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.). You will receive your line-up location via email the week before the parade. Click here to view a map that shows detours before and during the parade.

  • 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. 

Parade Day Morning:

  • Where you go to line up varies, depending on your entry. Refer to the parade lineup for your entry's lineup details.
  • Line-up time that morning begins at 9 a.m., and everyone must be in place by 10 a.m.
