We need to remember with sincere respect those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we sometimes take for granted
We need to keep in sacred remembrance those who died serving our country.
We need to never let them be forgotten.
We need to take a few moments from our day to honor them, and to thank their families for the incredible sacrifice they endure everyday.
Please note that staging locations listed below the map are subject to change until the start of the parade. Numbers are painted on the pavement at each location. All groups must be in position before 9:30am. A hyphenated number painted on the road means use 2 lanes for staging. If it looks like we skipped your number on Mooney Street, look on the opposite side of the road.
PLEASE keep pace with the group in front of you. The "slinky" affect is amplified as it travels down the parade, and can be a big problem by the time we reach the end of the route.
This is the day we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation in wartime. It is not a day to promote our businesses, candidates or campaigns for elective or appointed office, social or political ideologies.
Please do not hang on cars or floats. No throwing or distribution of any objects from the line of march, such as candy, balloons, gum, literature, etc. Such action may cause an accident by enticing a child into the line of march. If appropriate, such items may be handed out along the edges of the road. No one will be permitted to enter the parade, and may at any time be removed from the Parade, if a Parade Official believes or determines that they may be under the influence of alcohol or any other substance which may place at-risk the safety of others.
Coupons, paper flyers, balloons and flags may be distributed by parade participants only. Handbills and political flyers of any kind are strictly prohibited.
Dances or other demonstrations must keep pace with the parade flow. Groups may not stop to perform. All special movements, acts, or demonstrations MUST be performed while moving forward at a speed necessary to maintain designated pace and intervals between groups.
A vehicle with a platform used to carry exhibits or participants should be a trailer or flat-bed truck, with a minimum length of 6ft for the platform area. All floats shall be limited to no more than 12 feet high and 10 feet wide. Floats must be able to be pulled by tow hitch in case of a breakdown.
Please join us after the parade for a brief ceremony in Memorial Park honoring our veterans, and then hot dogs at the American Legion Hall courtesy of Weingartz.
- See you on Monday morning!
