Marshals Wanted

Interested in volunteering for the Parade?  We could always use volunteers to help marshal the Parade!

What does a marshal do?  Marshals assist with lining up units prior to the Parade; ensures the continued movement of units along the Parade Route; provides assistance to units during the Parade; and assists with crowd control to minimize interference with the Parade.

If you are interested in volunteering as a Parade Marshal, please send us an email with your contact information by March 4, 2019 and we will be in touch with you!
