Volunteer Opportunities & Registration

Making sure parade day is enjoyable and safe for everyone requires help from volunteers. Sign up today – your help is appreciated! Select any areas you would be interested in volunteering for and please register no later than July 15th.

Please make sure to read the Parade Guidelines & Safety Rules.

Opportunities Include:

Corner Guards: these volunteers will be posted at each street intersection to help keep parade attendees off the streets and prevent encroachment on the parade route. There will be 3 to 4 at each intersection along the parade route.

Staging: there will be 2 volunteers on each block where the parade entries are lining up prior to the parade. They will move the entries along so they enter the parade procession at the correct time. They may also walk along with the parade to help keep the speed accurate and help with crowd control.

Set-Up: these volunteers will help the afternoon before the parade with pounding the number stakes along the staging blocks and may also help the police/city works with no parking signs and barricades.

Tear-Down: help to take down barricades and other signage from staging and parade route.

Trash Pick-Up: will pick up trash left by parade attendees, bag it and take to dumpsters. Will also help collect bags of trash or whatever is left from the Circus Celebration.

Banner Carriers: will have a set place in the parade to help carry the sponsor banners – 2 per banner is ideal.
