ABOUT THE PARADE
The 29th annual Dominion Christmas parade will take place on Saturday, December 1, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. in Richmond, Virginia. The parade will depart from the Science Museum on W. Broad Street and continue east to 7th Street. This beloved Richmond tradition attracts more than 100,000 spectators each year from everywhere in Virginia, with thousands more enjoying the live television broadcast.
For many Richmonders, the parade kicks off the Christmas season. The parade will feature a very special Grand Marshal, holiday floats,marching bands, huge helium balloons, and, of course, Santa himself! This year’s parade will continue the grand celebration of fun and excitement for all!
If you can’t experience the parade in person, you can watch it LIVE on WTVR-CBS6 on the day of the parade from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00noon, or see it on Christmas Day.
IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ ALL THE DETAILS BELOW. THERE ARE CHANGES FROM LAST YEAR'S PARADE. HOPE TO SEE LOTS, AND LOTS OF HOOPERS SIGNED UP TO PARTICIPATE THIS YEAR. THIS WAS A GREAT TIME LAST YEAR, AND I BET THIS YEAR WILL BE EVEN BETTER!

HOOP MAKING NIGHT - location has not been finalized. A Facebook invitation will be used for the Hoop Making Night. I'm sure there will be lots of questions regarding hoops, and hoop making. Please hold your questions for the Facebook invitation. THANKS!!!!
It's best if work out a parking plan with others. Being dropped off at the Science Museum, or parking one vehicle near the museum, and then either being picked at the end, or having another car parked at the end, is the best way to handle parking. BE SURE TO PLAN FOR THIS, AND GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME THE MORNING OF THE PARADE.
THAT'S IT FOR NOW ~ DON'T FORGET TO RSVP RIGHT AWAY SO THAT YOU CAN BE ON THE EMAIL LIST.
I will need to touch base with anyone that has never participated in an RVA Hoop House sponsored event.
HOOP LOVE AND HOPE!!!!
