10 Parade Tips
1. Plan ahead. Announce the event to all your friends and family, and let them know your expected return Hom time.
2. Take temperature before departing for the car parade.
Dress for the weather, 82 Fahrenheit tomorrow. Participants will be subdivided into groups of 5 participants each, with one leader to lead the way.
3. Check your vehicle before the parade.
Make sure your car is in good condition, have properly functioning brakes and a full gas tank. Of course, don’t go without Business Auto Liability Insurance.
4. Select your driver.
Choose who’s going to be the driver, and make sure to follow all traffic laws. Stay with your subgroup as much as possible, but don’t worry if you are off the course a little. Ensure your drivers have a valid driver’s license and limited cellphone use while driving.
5. Follow any parade-specific requirements.
When you enter a parade, ensure you have a list of the organization’s guidelines. Contact phone numbers between your subgroup, and contact phone for the non emergency police department. Don’t throw any object outside of your car. Follow the guidelines to ensure we can participate in future parades. More information will be released about the subgroup later today.

It’s always a good idea to have a first aid kit handy, as well as someone trained in first aid. Please let us know if you are certified for CPR.
