You will need to walk across street past the City Hall lot to the Boss Building parking lot.

Be sure to bring sunblock, hat, sunglasses, water, sun umbrella, raingear, etc. as needed. Since it will be hot please bring lots of your own water. Water WILL NOT be provided by CLCB. The parade steps off rain or shine. (We will have some downtime between decorating and rehearsal before parade starts during which you will need to stay on or near flatbed. (feel free to find shady area near flatbed to relax).
MUSIC: March #1: Billboard, March #2: Washington Post, Grandstand: Stars & Stripes. Be sure to bring a lyre to hold music or you can bring your own music stand if you need one. There is limited space on flatbed, so there may not be room for everyone to have a stand. (Attach music to chair or clothes pin music to the collar of person in front of you works great too!) Be sure to take music out of your folder at Tuesday night rehearsal on 7/2/19 to bring with you to the parade. Music folders WILL NOT be at parade site.
