Rivertown Days Parade

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018


Dancers and Parent Volunteers needed


All dancers are invited to come and show your studio/community spirit by participating in the Rivertown Days Parade Sunday, July 22nd. Parade starts at noon.  We are float #43.


11:45am K-1st and up and the competition line dancers will meet  10th Street at end of Smead building across from the North Smead Parking lot to learn a short dance routine. Then we will join the others dancing behind our float #43. Dancers make sure you stretch at home.


12:00pm – all preschoolers, preschool parents, and those riding on the float–report to the parking lot across from Smead where our float will be located.  Parents of the preschoolers need to stay and supervise their dancer.   We are Float #43.


Roads closed: Keep in mind, the parade starts at 12:00 and many of the roads will be closed to vehicle traffic at that time, so you will need to park and walk in. 


Parent volunteers are needed to walk the parade route passing out ribbons and candy, spraying dancers with water (bring your own device), and riding on the float with the preschoolers. 


What to wear & bring to parade: Please bring a water bottle or two labeled with your name.  Be sure to wear sunscreen, comfortable walking shoes, and Jan’s School of Dance logo wear, the National Champions or Anniversary t-shirts, or Jan’s studio colors.  (black, white, turquoise) 


Pick up: Parents should plan on picking up their dancers at the end of the parade route (4th and Eddy St. by Wilson Park) as soon as our float is done. It must make a short stop and keep moving.  Please do not wait until the parade is over.  We will have a baggy of candy and freezies for all participants!


Please see the Rivertown Days website for more details. http://www.hastingsmn.org/rivertowndays.html
