The 2013 Natal Day Parade Application for the 118th PEPSI NATAL DAY Parade presented by the Chronicle Herald is now available by clicking on the link below.
* The parade will take place on Monday August 5th beginning at 10:00 AM sharp.
* Registration will be at the corner of Novalee Drive & Duffus Street open at 8:00 AM.
* All entries should arrive NO LATER THAN 9:00 AM - This will allow an orderly line-up with the assistance of our parade marshalls.
* Please respect them as they are volunteers.
* It is our intention to start at 10:00 am sharp and be at the finish by 12:00 noon. To this end we will have three mobile parade marshalls along the route who may
ask you to slow up your pace or speed up your pace.
* The parade is to have fun and promote yourselves along the route, following the rules in the parade registration located at natalday.org . However enteries who chose to ignore those rules will be removed from the parade by a parade marshall.
* After the reviewing stand on the Dartmouth side of the Bridge, water will be distributed to 'walkers' in the Parade without stopping. Others are encouraged to have water in their parade vehicles for their own use as required and what the temperature dictates.
I wish all of you a safe and enjoyable parade experience and thank you for your support of this annual tradition. If weather dictates a change of plan please visit natalday.org before starting out.
Greg Hayward - Chairman of Parade & Parade Grand Marshall (For more information please leave a detailed message at 902-479-4092)
