Gem City is once again invited to march in the Holiday Parade Friday November 25. The parade takes place after the grand illumination (Christmas tree lights up). Dress festively, dress yourself and your dog in lights. Bring family members and as many dogs as you like. We will also need 2 people to carry the Gem City banner. About a week before the parade, an email will be sent letting you know the meeting location in downtown Dayton, the meeting time and some dos and don’ts. The time is likely to be around 6:30 PM. The parade route is about a half mile (an easy walk). You will receive hours for participating (about 2 hours per dog handler team, allowing for your time spent parking and walking to the start, then waiting for the parade to start). Sign up on line to give us an idea of how many participants to expect. It’s always a fun time. The children love to see our dogs. Below is a copy of the note from the parade coordinator.
Congratulations! You have been accepted into the Dayton Children’s Spectacular in Lights Parade on Friday, November 25th. Because this is the 50th Anniversary of the Dayton Holiday Festival, we want to make it extra exciting and bright for the children watching. We look forward to seeing you all lit up and festive! Don’t be afraid to get creative.
You’ll be receiving more details soon.
