4th Of July Parade **New Info/Parade Entry List**
Ok Here is the new poop on whats going on....This will also be the official thread for the parade entry so i dont have to maintain 2 threads
The news that i got today is that:
The parade will be on the 4th of July. Staging and decoration will be at Clawson Shopping Center which is located on 14 Mile Rd. between Crooks and Livernois (Main St.) We will need everyone there by 9am, however we do not usually end up moving in the parade until around 10-10:30. Please try and be there on time, as the parking lot fills quickly and will not be accessable after 9am. We are usually the last through, however most popular from what ive heard in the past.
There will be a 50 vehicle limit as always, and there will be 2 rows of vehicles.
***Candy WILL be allowed, HOWEVER it may NOT be thrown from the vehicles. This was an issuse in the past due to kids running out into the parade to get candy that didn't make it to the curb. As long as it is passed out by hand it is ok. This is not just a rule for us, it goes for all entrys.***
Please: If you have any vulgar stickers/magnets/things drawn in mud on your vehicle, cover them or remove them. I could not care less personally, however i think u can understand why i am adding this in here....:miff:
I am unfortunately not having a get together at my place after. If someone would like to host something that would be great! I have a lot of family in the area, and i may not be able to hang around after the parade for very long. I do appologize to the people who drive a long ways to get here only for the parade.
It would be great if someone wanted to make a banner, or some window signs this year. I have made them in the past, but i do not have access to the graphics place i used to work at. I think there was some confusion in the past who and what were in the parade for. This is the first time Greatlakes 4X4 will be there so it would be nice if we could tell people who we are.
I am also posting this on Michigan Jeepers.org for those who are not part of GL4X4, however im going to ask them to post here to sign up, as it will be to hard to monitor 2 threads, and who signed up first kinda stuff. Hopefully this will be ok with the management :tonka:
If you have any other questions, please feel free to post here, or PM me.
This list below is of people that replied in this thread that sounded like they were interested, please let me know if you will be attending, and if something changes please let me know.
If there are any changes i will post them ASAP....
*EDIT Some New INFO*
Nothing really major just letting everyone know that the parade will start forming around 7:30am, I will get there around 8am Tuesday morning. We don't really have anything to setup, so I dont see the need to get there that early. As I said before though, we all need to be there by 9am when the parade starts. Just to clear anything up, it will be at the clawson shopping center, which is located between Livernois (Main St.) and Crooks, on 14 Mile Rd in Clawson MI, and go from there to the Clawson City Park. Decorations are encouraged.

I'll go also.... Won't be stock then (hell if Jeep Outfitters calls me back, it will be lifted by next week), but is it on the 4th? GotRcks asked and I didn't see an answer. I would assume the parade is on the 4th, which makes sense, however I've learned not to assume..... If it is on the 4th I can't go....

I will start a new thread as soon as i get more info, and the people who posted in here... they will be entered in the list in the order they posted in this thread.
thanks, hopefully it will be a great time!
