We look forward to seeing your parade entry on Saturday December 1st!! Check-in and line up assignments will begin @ 10:00 a.m. at Parade Central located on the corner of Main St. and East Salty St. (There will be a sign to help you find us.) All entries are asked to be in their places by 12:00 noon for judging. If your entry is not in place at that time, it may not be judged!! We understand that some entries may have members that do not want to sit/stand on their float for the entire time between judging and when the parade starts. Once the judges review your entry, you are welcome to leave your float to enjoy the days activities, but please have members return at least 10 minutes prior to 1:30 p.m (start time) so that the parade is not delayed. Your cooperation in getting our parade started on time is greatly appreciated. This will also allow us to award ribbons prior to the start of the parade, so entries may show off their ribbons during the parade!
We would also like to invite you to come early the day of the parade and enjoy the other Christmas activities going on that day downtown Thorndale! If you have any questions please contact Peggy Wise @512-269-8728 or Allen Hejl 905-3038 or Susan Draybeck @ 512-269-8796.
