10:00 AM  Float Clean Up - ALL MEMBERS & Waiting List


Parade ends as the unit turns left or north on 20th Street. You may dis-embark as the volunteers tell your group. All groups should disburse from the parade route so the parade may continue to move forward. Floats should be cleaned of any debris prior to leaving the float.

  • Stay away from the float, tow vehicle and hitch area at all times and respect safety security as they stop members away from the float. Floats move slowly and have bad visibility. Watch your back and do not lean over to pick up beads off the street.
  • Walking is ALLOWED on the sides of the float. 
  • NO Standing in the hallway or bead bags on the floor of the hallway.  Keep it clear.  
  • NO standing by or on the stairs on the back of the float.  NO standing by or on the stairs to the castle.
  • Do not pile beads on the back of the float, or in the walkways painted black. Beads MUST have your name on them! Take your beads out of the box at home and use a disposable bag.
  • Participation in this Parade does not give authorization to consume alcoholic beverages in staging areas or on the parade route. Open and/or visible containers of alcoholic beverages in plain view may lead to action by law enforcement.

  • We will be passing under live trolley lines and low hanging stop lights. Do not touch anything, do not hang or throw beads on anything and watch your head!
  • DISBANDING - 20th Street is designated for parade float disbanding only. This area will be used for the brief dismantling of float accessories and the loading and/or unloading of participants.
  • None of these items are allowed in or near the parade route: Styrofoam, glass, confetti, balloons, paper material/flyers etc., fireworks, firearms, cap guns, fake guns, metal swords and no confetti pop cannons.
IMPORTANT by TPD: See Something, Say Something to Law enforcement.


  • No suitcases please and No BOXES!
  • Please put bead bags in the storage shelves or up in the village or in the castle. Make sure your name is marked clearly on all bags.
  • Do not pile beads on the back of the float, or in the walkways painted black. Beads MUST have your name on them! Take your beads out of the box at home and use a disposable bag.
  • Do not bring suitcases, duffle bags or coolers and lay them all over the float floor, especially on the rear of the float.
  • Buy "Throw” beads, about one box (60 dozen) should work well for this short parade. Put beads in disposable plastic bags. No suitcases, NO BOXES, or coolers allowed. If you do not put your name on your beads someone may accidentally throw them for you or move them to another location.
