Arlington 4th of July Parade

 

COME JOIN US AT THE BIGGEST INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE IN THE SOUTHWEST! 

We will have a support truck with seating for those who can't walk that far (Aprox. 2.5 miles). 

We will have some water but please bring your own because we can't be sure how many people will march in the parade.  It's gonna be HOT!  As we were told by a xian at the last parade "If you think it's hot now, wait 'till you get to hell!"

You may park your car in other UTA Parking Lots or at the UTA stadium and take the shuttle bus to the parade Parking lot.  Shuttles will begin at 6:30am.  The Shuttle is probably the best idea.

There is no parking in the Assembly area but there is a designated drop-off area at the UTA parking lot south of the line-up area.  To access drop-off site, turn north off of Park Row onto Colledg Street and proceed north to the UTA parking lot.  Proceed into the parking lot and follow the signs to the designated drop-off area.

The parade units begin to leave the Assembly Area to line up for the parade at 8:45.  The parade begins at 9:00

Organizers must be at the Assembly Area at 7:30 so come early if you want to help us decorate the support truck.

The parade will be over about 11:30.

For more information about the parade go to http://arlington4th.org/

We hope to have a lot of non-theists marching 'cause we're gonna have a great time!  The more the merrier.  COME JOIN US.

    I need someone who can meet me in the drop off area and watch Lena and her wagon while I park. Her wagon probably can't go on the shuttle. :(

    I read that the parade starts at 9, so surely 630 is too early...imho

      The shuttles will begin at 6:30 and continue every few minutes until the parade starts and again when the first entrant in the parade gets back to the staging area. We will be there 8ish.

    Will try to make it. Do we really need to be there at 6:30 in order to make the start?

    How many people are coming now?

    Some of us are wearing "Millions of American's are Patriotic without God" shirts designed for this parade but it's a little late to get one. Anything with "atheist" on it would be great but not necessary. Whatever you wear, we'll just be glad you're there.

    Should we wear anything specific to "stand out"? I am going to try my darndest to get there, and I'm bringing my 4-year-old in the jogging stroller (which, incidentally, can hold a lot of stuff like water and sunscreen, in case anyone needs a place to stash stuff). Looking forward to it!
