Saturday Picnic: Parade Route and other logistics
Oct 25, 2018
We are excited for our fall picnic and costume parade this Saturday, October 27th, 4 to 7 pm. The event is RAIN or SHINE. We have reserved the Patrick Henry gymnasium.
Food: We will be serving hamburgers, hotdogs (and veggie hotdogs), and chips. We will also have a couple of vegetable trays and fruit trays, cake, water and juice boxes to drink. Side items to share are welcome.
Parade: The parade route is as follows. Because the police escort is on a tight schedule, the parade will start promptly at 4:15. Bring umbrellas in case of rain!
- Start at Patrick Henry School
- South on S. Highland St.
- West on S. 9th St.
- North on S. Irving St.
- West on S. 7th St.
- South on S. Ivy St.
- East on S. 9th St.
- North on S. Highland St.
- End at Patrick Henry School
Gift certificates: We will be raffling off a $25 gift card to Bangkok 54, $50 gift card to Lost Dog, and 2 $10 gift cards to Sugar Shack (and hopefully more!). The first raffle ticket is free per person. Additional raffle tickets will be $1.
Many thanks to these businesses for providing gift cards, as well as to Penrose Civic Association for their generosity in supporting the picnic, and to our neighborhood Giant for providing gift cards!
