Parade Route: The parade lines up on around 20th and Atlantic, marches south down Atlantic Ave and ends at Convention Center. About 1.5 miles!
Note: We will be taking buses to and from the parade. All students must ride the bus. Students may not “meet” us at the parade. Additionally, no one may leave directly from the parade without a written letter from a parent and visible contact with parent.
Lunch Location: Daytona Inn – 4010 Atlantic Ave, Wildwood, NJ
Parade runs down Atlantic Ave and ends at Convention Center.
This week we will have one rehearsal to finish preparing for the upcoming parades. On Saturday we have 2 parades! These are great community parades and we have a lot of fun participating in them. Students should think about and prepare for the cold evening weather and "layer up" under their uniforms.
=> On Saturday, students will need money for lunch. We will be stopping at a shopping center where there are several fast food restaurants to chose from.
=> Dinner will be provided at the end of the West Cape May parade by our band parents.
=> All musicians will need a red & white Santa hat for the parades. We will be using these in place of our uniform hats.
