General Entry: The parade line-up for your section will be from 7:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. You will check in at 24 & B Street with your vehicle and then will proceed into the park on a ‘first come first service lineup’. 


Shuttle transportation and parking are available at 23rd & J Streets—South High’s Parking lot—to 25th and E Streets from 7:15 a.m. ‐ 8:45 a.m. This is for participants that also need to find a place to park their vehicles that are not going to be in the parade. Another option for walkers is to get dropped off at 25 & E by friend or family member.
Reminder: You’ll need to text or call your group leader to see where they are at.
