Independence Day Parade – Click for Details

July 4, 2015 @ 4:15 pm

We will meet at the Chevron gas station at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 4, on the corner of Huntington Drive and Monterey Road. We will distribute wristbands (see note below on wristbands) to our scouts at that time. We will then be assigned our banners, and the parade will begin about 4:45 p.m. We will march down Monterey Road to Virginia Road, then enter Lacy Park where the parade will end. Parents and siblings are welcome to follow along with the parade on the sidewalk, or just meet your scouts at the end of the parade. Dress for the parade is full Class A uniform without sash. Service hours will be granted to our parade marchers.

Glowstick Sales Event – Following the parade, our scouts in the Salesmanship Merit Badge class will complete the badge by selling glowsticks in Lacy Park. Scouts who are not in the Merit Badge class are also welcome to participate. We will meet at the flagpoles on the east side of Lacy Park (near the Virginia entrance) when the parade ends, and start selling – this should be about 6:00 p.m. The sales event should last until about 7:00 p.m. Dress for the sales event is full Class A uniform without sash.

Wristbands – Please note that everyone will need a wristband to enter Lacy Park on July 4. Scouts who march in the parade will receive wristbands when they check in before the parade. If you are participating in the sales event, but not marching in the parade, it would be best if you get your wristband prior to the parade on the 4th.

Family members who wish to go into Lacy Park should obtain their own wristbands. If you will not be entering the park but wish to pick up your scout after the parade or sales event, plan to meet your scout at the Virginia entrance to Lacy Park.
