Also make sure you bring enough candy to throw out to the kids. The past couple years we have brought 2 big bags from Costco in each jeep.

Also you can decorate your jeep with flags or whatever else you'd like

I'm sure going around the barrels and over the cuts is childs play for most of our Jeeps compared to what we put them through at TT or R&V!

yeah, but this parade isnt' just jeeps, there's marching bands, kids on bicycles, vet. walking, Shriners in go carts and mini bikes... typical parade, just wont' seem the same with construction going on.

I agree, if they had done the Frembes to Walton then moved on the the next section, they might even have been done, but no, they were putting new pavement down at the north end before the parade route...

I can't see them finishing that section before Monday.

My 17yo neighbor will be disappointed, she told my wife last night that she didn't want to miss the parade, she likes seeing the big jeep with the girl driving it.
