Is this kid and pet friendly?
Kids are more than welcome! Throwing candy from the car is a tradition in this parade. Kids line up and are expecting treats. IF we wish to throw candy, then we have to have at least 2 walkers. Their job is to watch for children and adults that may get in the way of the vehicle.
Should I bring Candy to throw?
Yes, but please make it hard candy, not chocolate that can melt and make a mess.
What about pets?
Pets are welcome to ride in your car and enjoy the fun. If you do bring a pet, please sure your pet is comfortable with crowds and loud noises. If the animal is walked in the parade, a person must follow the animals to remove any excrement left along the parade route. This is just good manners, afterall!
Should I decorate my car?
Since this is a Flag Day Parade, it is appropriate to have your Tesla decorated. Steamers, flags, red, white and blue. Show how proud we are to drive a US made car.
