FLYER: 71st Wahiawa Lions Veterans Parade Flyer
ASSEMBLY: Assemble at Ka’ ala Elementary School, 130 California Ave. Area opens at 8:00 AM.
NO CARS WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARK AT THE SCHOOL. THIS IS A DROP-OFF LOCATION ONLY. See additional instructions on schematic.
MAHALO VETERANS SIGN: Each unit is asked to make a ‘Mahalo Veterans” sign to display as they are marching. The sign should be visible from 20 yards away. Best sign will be recognized.
REPORT UNIT’S ARRIVAL: PLEASE SEND ONE REPRESENTATIVE TO CHECK IN AT THE BUS STOP IN FRONT OF KA’ALA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL to confirm your presence. You will be given a number to identify your spot in the parade. Designate a person in the right front of your unit to carry this number. You will be asked to position your unit in an area along California Avenue. Normally, you will also be informed of the unit that is marching ahead of your unit. All units must be in position for the parade start at 10:00 AM. Bathrooms will be available at the school. No smoking is allowed on the school grounds.
PARADE ROUTE: (Also see the schematic.) Units proceed up California Avenue, cross Kamehameha Highway, and continue to North Cane Street where units will turn left and disperse. Park. Throwing items into the crowds along the way is prohibited. Be sure that someone on the right front of your unit is holding your number up so that it can be seen from the reviewing stand. This is how the announcer will identify your unit and broadcast it to the crowd. The route is less than one mile long.
WATER: We recommend that units bring water with them along the parade route and onto the field.
DRIVERS: Please proceed slowly and watch for spectators, especially little children. If you have a “float”, please have someone assigned to help if the driver’s vision is hampered. No revving of engine.
SPACING BETWEEN MARCHING ORGANIZATIONS:
Your group should be 10 TO 15 yards behind the group in front. Spectators should be able to see the name of your unit as it approaches, watch it go by, and then have enough time to look for the next unit.
Units should go as far up North Cane Street as possible before dispersing.
IN CASE OF RAIN:
The parade will go on if the rain is not too intense. We will do our best to inform you if heavy rains cause cancellation.
