Parade Day Info for Participants

Parade check in begins at 7:00am at one of our two check in locations as noted below, however, all entries will need to be checked in by 9:15am to allow us time to finish staging the parade prior to the 10:00am start time.
---All Equestrian entries will need to report directly to the area in front of the old Fruitland Elementary School at the corner of Vineyard and Garfield. You will proceed to line up from that location and return to the same location after the parade.
---All Other Entries are to proceed to 8th and Dayton by way of 10th Avenue. Volunteers will be at 8th and Dayton to assist you in completing the check in process. This is the only entrance, as all other entrances will be blocked for staging.
All groups should arrive together for check-in. The parade is scheduled to start at 10:00am sharp in downtown Kennewick. All Entries will need to have their entry number placed on the left front of your entry. This allows the judges to identify each entry and allows the announcers along the parade route to properly identify your entry as you pass.
Please pay close attention to the distance between yourself and the entry in front of you to minimize gaps longer than 20 feet between entries.
