Happy Friday Pack!
Important Rose Parade Information
Scouts (and walking parents) need to meet at the corner of Glenwood and Front Street between 7:30 and 7:45 AM. We will meet on the South East (Bottom Right) of the intersection across from the UT Health EMS Services building. The best way to drop off is from the South (Green Arrows on the map). Everything else will be blocked off. It is normal to park somewhere else and walk to the meeting location.
Check-in – PLEASE check in your scouts with one of our leaders. We will have a sign-in and sign-out sheet to ensure all scouts are accounted for. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR SCOUT TO WALK TO THE MEETING LOCATION UNACCOMPANIED.
Parents – Lion and Tiger Parents are REQUIRED to walk with their scouts. Mr. Bockover will pull a trailer for the cubs to sit on. Parents may ride as well pending space. All other Parents are encouraged to walk with your scouts 🙂
Dress – Scouts should be in as much “Class A” Uniform regalia as they own. Blue Shirt, Hat, Neckerchief, Slide, etc. Parents should wear their Tan Uniform or a Green Pack T-Shirt. If you have neither, no problem! Odds are you will be wearing a jacket anyway.
Weather – When we arrive, the temperature will be in the Mid-50's. The forecast right now shows we'll be in the Mid-60's by the time we finish. Please dress accordingly! I highly recommend layers so that you can peel off a jacket as we begin marching and warming up.
Chairs – Feel free to bring a camp chair to use while we wait for the Parade to start. Mr. Bockover will be driving the Trailer and can carry chairs while we march.
Parade Route – See the Map below. The Parade will start (we are FIRST) at 9:00 AM. We expect to be finished within 30-45 minutes. The route will begin where we meet, travel west (left) down Front Street, through the Fair Grounds, and will end at Rose Stadium. In the past, the parade has entered the stadium from the Visitors' side (North Side), walked around the Track, and ended past the Home entrance (South Side).
Pick-Up – Families need to pick up scouts PROMPTLY after we exit the stadium. Please do NOT wait until the parade is over to pick up your scouts. YOU MUST SIGN OUT YOUR SCOUT!
**Heads Up** – The parade route might flip at Rose Stadium. The Parade Officials will let us know in the morning. The Parade would enter the home side first, then exit on the visitor side. IF this does happen, pickup will be at Mike Carter Field. We will let parents know during check-in.
