    Hello skating families.  Please join the BRSA and BRFSC in the parade.  The kids always have a lot of fun doing this event!
    • Time:  Line-up begins at 11:00am behind the BR Middle School
    • Pick-up:  We will step out of the parade at the BR Community Library....please meet your child there to pick her/him up.
    • Candy:  We are allowed to hand out candy as we walk....bring your own bag of candy if you wish to do this.
    • Theme:  All participants have been asked to reflect the "Bulldog Beach Bash" theme.  Please bring inflated beach balls for our skaters to toss around while walking.
    • Zuca's:  Skaters are known for having Zuca bags.  If you have one and would like to pull it along during the parade, please feel free to bring it!
    • We will be walking so wear comfy shoes.  There will be a pick up truck w/ us in case younger children get tired part way through the parade.
    • If you have BRSA/BRFSC apparel, please wear it (t-shirts, coats, vest, etc)....if you have extra apparel it would be great if you could bring what you have so that our members who have not yet received their apparel orders have something to help reflect that they are in our membership.
    If you have any questions please contact me (Daphne) or our Parade Coordinator, Pam Handy.
