We strongly remind you that everything takes very long on that day: getting to the area, getting within the area, inspection, etc. Give yourself twice as much time as you think you will need. The parade will not proceed without everything in place, and we will not hold up the parade for any missing/un-inspected floats. It is not necessary for all of your participants to be there as early as the floats, but we require everyone in place no later than 4:00pm. Anyone in your float entry can make use of the warm-up area located at UW Richardson College until 4:00pm.
Use this link to an information map for the 2017 Santa Claus Parade.
The map gives a lot of important information about locations, routes, amenities, etc.
We want to thank you all for joining the parade and we look forward to a very busy, very fun, and very rewarding parade for everyone involved!
