Every effort is made to include as many of the streets as possible that missed being on the
parade route last year. However, due to logistical considerations, and depending on the amount of
carts participating, it is not feasible for the parade to drive through every street in the development.
PARADE RULES ARE SIMPLE
NO PASSING! NO RACING! NO SPEEDING! STAY ON COURSE!
– in other words –
KEEP UP WITH THE PROCESSION AND THE CART IN FRONT OF YOU TO AVOID BREAKS IN THE LINE AND UNNECESSARY CONFUSION
