Not every volunteer advisor can commit for this parade, we highly recommend you join as a family. At least one parent should show up and lead the kids through the parade. Do I have to finish the whole parade, 2 miles, from 1:30 to 4:00pm? You can sure sneak out with parent supervised. We only ask you to be quick and safe as we can't interrupt the parade for any personal reason. Parade needs to move forward with a fair speed. How can student carry lunch and water?
Lunch: please put lunch in a sack bag. Student can't carry a huge lunch bag during parade.
Water: parent, please carry the water for your family. Student: please carry a light weight sack backpack for your water bottle. Rain or Shine: Please bring a transparent trash bag for students to cover themselves if its raining. Holding an umbrella for 2 miles will be too demanding for students. Please apply sunblock if it is sunny. Santa hat is recommended for the parade. Should I wear masks during parade?
LA county recommended that you wear a mask at crowded outdoor events. If you pick a medical mask, please decorate it per this year holiday theme: “A Charles Dickens Christmas”.
How safe and secure the parade is?
Parade organizer said that each road entrance will be blocked physically with: camp tailer, truck or multiple small cars. LAPD officers will be on site too.
