Group leaders will be provided with detailed staging instructions.
B, D, F and H Divisions enter staging streets from Ditmar Street - no access from Coast Highway. C, E, G and J Divisions enter from Oceanside Boulevard only - no access from side streets. The group leader should check in at Ditmar Elementary. All other participants should proceed directly to the assigned staging area. All participants should review Parade Rules at the bottom of this page.
NO PARKING IN THE STAGING AREAS UNTIL THE ROADS HAVE BEEN CLOSED (approx. 8:00 A.M.), THE BARRICADES HAVE BEEN INSTALLED AND THE MARSHALLS (IN YELLOW VESTS) ARE ON SITE. IF YOU ARRIVE EARLY, PLEASE PARK OFF-SITE.
