  • If your group is performing in the parade and you need to stop several times during the parade to perform, be sure that your performance does not cause a backup of the units following you or leave a large space in the parade procession. Stops of 15 seconds or longer are an excessive delay of the parade progress. Please keep our Parade moving—without GAPS.
