Parade Attire: Tennis shoes with socks, (ideally, black) stretchy winter gloves to protect hands from the road, and Fourth of July Apparel. We know not everyone has the Tank and Shorts set- some sizes are available in our pro shop, otherwise, we also have Patriotic themed leotards available. If nothing else, please wear purple or Wildcard apparel. Remember a water bottle (to pass) and sunscreen. You can wear red, white and blue gear but don’t bring a ton of extra things with because there will be limited spaces to carry extra items.
Parade Date: Monday, May 29, 2023
Parade Start Time: 10:30 am
Reporting Time: 8:45 am -9:15 am – Streets will close beginning at 9:15 and you will be unable to get through after that time.
Reporting Location: Elm Grove Village Park, 13600 Juneau Blvd, Elm Grove, WI 53122
Drop off Locations: All drop offs before the parade will be at Elm Grove Park. All acts & participants must arrive at the park on Legion Drive from the north. Vehicles will not be able to enter the park from Juneau Blvd. There are two drop off locations at the park.
• The first location is at the footbridge located at the intersection of Legion and Elmhurst. There will be a large “DROP OFF HERE” sign and Junior Guild Volunteers in neon safety vests to help direct you or your child to the appropriate staging area. This is a great place to drop off young parade participants! There is NO PARKING or PROLONGED STOPPING near the footbridge. We will try to have older gymnasts or parents to help walk kids to the spot. We don’t know our staging area just yet. But we usually have a shade tent so look for that. This is probably the best drop off spot.
Pick up– please plan to pick up your gymnast near the BMO Harris at the end of the route (Behind/Kitty Corner) from Sendiks. Please be prompt. I would park your vehicle somewhere near there so gymnasts don’t need to walk all the way back to the parade start.
We could use about 4-5 parents to help with waters and brochures and rounding up children. Let Amy know if you can help! You must be dressed in Wildcard Apparel.
There is NO practice Monday night!
