If you are interested in joining the Andover Community Center at the Andover Family Fun Fest Parade this Saturday, July 14th, here are the details:
Parade line-up begins at Andover High School at 9:30 am with the parade starting at 11:00 am. Please allow yourself enough time to get parked or dropped off and to find our assigned parade line-up location. We will be located in the #21 spot this year, listed under the Andover YMCA Community Center. The Andover YMCA and players with MN Premier Volleyball will also be marching along with us too! We still have spaces available if you have other family members/cousins, neighbors or friends that would like to join us in the parade.
Listed below is a link of a map of the school grounds showing where parade participants will be lining up/staging. Our skate director, Ashley Kalmes, will be your contact person during the parade. She will meet you at the #21 spot, please make sure you introduce yourself to her. She will have a box of Andover Skate School t-shirts for anyone wishing to wear a skate school t-shirt, the t-shirts are yours to keep. We have mini-pinwheels to distribute to all parade participates and you are welcome to bring a bag of candy to handout too if you wish.
A couple of reminders for parade marchers….
- All children must be accompanied by an adult - you cannot drop off your child to participate
- Wear comfortable shoes
- Bring a water bottle - we don’t want anyone getting dehydrated
- Young children can be pushed in strollers or pulled in wagons, etc.
