Festival of Light Parade

Volunteers are needed to help with this year’s Festival of Light parade. The success of the parade is due to the many volunteers who donate their valuable time that day to help keep the parade organized, safe and enjoyed by the tens of thousands of spectators who come downtown to see the floats.  Volunteers are needed with crowd control and to assist in the staging area.

The attached Guidelines for Volunteers include the contact information and explain the time commitment and what is expected from the volunteers. 2013 Volunteer Guidelines
