Please check the Parade Lineup Page. Find your number. Please know your number as you arrive at the parade lineup.
Here are some important notes regarding approaching the parade for line-up and lining up for the parade – please read carefully:
1. Parade officials will be on hand at Washington Street and River Road and at Apple Street and River Road beginning at 11:30 to give line-up directions for those participating in the parade. NO VEHICLES will be allowed to travel West on River Road from Apple Street beginning at 11:45. LINE-UP TIME WILL BE FROM 11:30 TO 1:00 on the day of the parade. All participants must be in place no later than 1:00 p.m --- failure to be on time may result in you being placed in an inauspicious space – perhaps behind the parade. Parade start time is 2:00. Port a lets will be scattered along the River Road line-up route for your convenience.
2. Upon arrival on the day of the parade, please locate your parade number painted on the River Road and park your vehicles/groups off the road on the LEVEE side of River Road (opposite side of the painted number – on River side as far to the right as possible).
3. Parade music must be Christmas music and attire must be appropriate for a Christmas event. Failure to conform to these rules may result in being pulled from the parade.
4. It is highly recommended that groups meet prior to approaching the parade, then drive and/or walk to the parade line-up together. There is limited space for parking --- participants will be directed to park on the land area adjacent to Washington Street and in the neighborhoods adjacent to River Road (between First Street and River Road).
