Come join GSHPA Service Unit 416 in a celebration of community at the Boalsburg Fire Company Memorial Parade!
The Parade is Saturday, May 26, 2017. Line up begins a 3:00pm and the Parade will begin at 5:00pm. Floats and Marching groups are to meet at Blue Spring Park located on Wagner St. in Boalsburg. The Parade route leaves the park on to W. Pine St. heading East on Pine making a right onto Boal Ave., then a right on to Main St. The Parade heads West on Main and ends at the intersection of Wagner St. There will be parking available at Blue Spring Park. The Carnival will be open following the parade. Marching groups, floats and twirling groups will all be judged during the parade with awards being given out to the top 3 in each of those categories. Awards will be announced after the parade. We look forward to seeing you at the parade!
Girls who participate should wear their uniforms (white shirt, vest/sash, and khakis) and comfortable shoes for walking, as well as bring water. We will be providing a limited number of flags for girls to hand out on the parade route. Feel free to bring other favors to distribute to the spectators.
It is not a long or arduous parade and is suitable for girls of all ages and abilities. Distance is approximately 1 mile over mostly level ground. Troop leaders will need to ensure that they have enough adults to maintain proper ratios for their troop age level and that they have all appropriate paperwork–roster and permissions etc. If your troop does not have sufficient adults, you may combine yourself with another troop.
Girls attending without a troop must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Boy/Cub Scout siblings are welcome to don their uniforms and join us as well! No advance registration is required for tag-a-longs, but any unregistered minor children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Memorial Day weather is often unpredictable. Please check the forecast and Be Prepared. All marchers should bring water.
All scouts who pre-register before May 21st will be able to purchase a fun patch for $1.
Marchers should arrive at 4:00PM (no later than 4:30PM). Plan for traffic and problems finding parking.
