REMINDER:   CITY ORDINANCE PROHIBITS THE THROWING OF CANDY OR OTHER MATERIALS DURING THE PARADE. No candy or any other materials will be allowed to be thrown or dropped from floats or other vehicles along the Parade route by Parade entries. Only a parade participant on foot may hand candy or other items to parade spectators on the sidewalk. To keep youngsters from surging into the street to retrieve candy, CANDY DISTRIBUTORS MUST WALK AT CURBSIDE TO HAND OUT CANDY. Please respect our concern for children’s safety.
