Children's Parade

Jan 20, 2018
3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

All attendees must pay (even krewe members). First paid, first ride! There are 80 spots for riders and unlimits spots for walkers. All children under the age of 6 MUST ride AND be accompanied by an adult, or be pushed in a stroller.

When you arrive, please check in at the tent first before boarding the float.  If you didn't sign and submit a waiver, you'll be asked to complete one there.  All participants will receive wristbands indicating you are part of our group.

If you still owe money or want to buy some last minute beads, we will have a Square swiper available, and will also accept cash and checks.

You can find the Bead Etiquette and Float Safety document in Profile>Docs.  Please make sure you read this before Saturday.  You'll be asked to sign it upon check in.

FLOAT POSITION:  The float will be located at position #83 which will be on Bayshore Blvd., right about Coachman.

START TIME:  The parade starts at 3:30 pm.  We ask that all parade participants be floatside by 3:00 pm at the latest.  Due to our position towards the back of the parade, the float probably won't start rolling till 4:15 or so.  

FOOD AND DRINK:  Pizza and water will be provided.  Feel free to bring other snacks and drinks for your child.

WEATHER:  It looks like it will be a great day for a parade with the high being 71 degrees.  You may still want a light sweater or wind breaker because it can get breezy along the bay.

BEADS:  If you do run out of beads during the parade, we will have additional bags of 10-dozen beads available for sale for $25.
