For Volunteers and Parade Participants
Preparations have been made for a gala day on Wednesday, July 4th, and we are proud that you will be with us.
PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
A parade lineup and map have been provided for you. Streets used for staging and the parade route are marked with a solid line on the map.
The Crescent is reserved for staging the Automotive Division and is not to be used as an access route to the assembly area by other vehicles and marching groups. South Park will be used only for access to the Crescent parking deck. Parking for participants is as follows:
Assemble your entry at the location designated in the line-up. Park all parade vehicles close to the curb and check in with your serial marshal. The marshals will be wearing white 4th of July staff tee shirts. After buses, trucks, or other non-parade vehicles are unloaded, they should proceed to Central Avenue (near EDGEMONT PARK) to wait your arrival at the end of the parade route.
Please check the parade line up sheet and make a note where you are to assemble. Every group has a designated spot, which may be different from other years. Please go to the spot that is indicated. Report to your serial marshal and make sure they have all the pertinent information that you were to fill out. This will be read at the reviewing stand in the exact order you march.
NOTE: The parade will start at 11:00 a.m. sharp, rain or shine. The parade route is 1.67 miles long and ends 50 yards beyond the reviewing stand at Edgemont Memorial Park.
Rest Room facilities and drinking water will be available at the assembly area in the United Way Building, 60 South Fullerton Avenue, at the Montclair Public Library, and in the Edgemont Park Shelter House at the end of the parade route. Each unit should also carry a container of drinking water for its members to use en route. You can purchase refreshments at Edgemont Park.
RULES OF MARCH
The Township of Montclair assumes no responsibility for accident or injury. Parade participants assume all risks and hazards incidental to the conduct of the parade including transportation to and from the parade.
On behalf of the Committees, we thank you and your organization for deciding to share the 61st Annual Independence Day Celebration with us. Thank you for your cooperation.
