2nd and 4th of July Parade Information

Parade reminders:

Do not forget a water bottle, sunscreen, bug spray (for evening), gloves, and appropriate clothing such as sneakers and either your Wildcard leo, Wildcard T-shirt, or hoodie/warm up depending on the weather.

Girls are wearing black, purple and teal exhibition leos (short sleeve) and boys are wearing black Wildcard t-shirts & black shorts.  Any parent(s) walking in the parade(s) will also need to wear Wildcard attire.  Deck yourselves out in patriotic head wear, socks, skirts, etc.!  We are planning to have a Independence Day t-shirt available for parents, coaches and the boys to wear during the parade.  The girls that will be tumbling may purchase one but unless they are Gold Bugs, they should not be wearing it until after the parade.  (The shirts get in the way when tumbling – plus they are white/grey!).  Cost for this t-shirt is $12.  It’s super cute.  See below.  Please fill out this google doc if you are planning to purchase one.  Money needs to be submitted by Friday at the latest.
