Los Gatos Children's Holiday Parade

Annual Parade - Overview
The Annual Los Gatos Children's Holiday Parade is held on the first Saturday of December (1, this year), rain or shine. Full details about this year's parade are below.

Amateur Radio licensee volunteers from throughout Santa Clara County provide emergency radio communications support to local service and public safety agencies during the parade in case of emergencies, or lost parents.  Typically over 20 volunteers participate, half from LG/MS, the balance from neighboring cities. This year we plan to integrate CERTs using FRS/GMRS radios.  

The most common service provided is helping to connect lost parents with their children. The parade is always a fun and useful activity to be associated with.  Our volunteers come back each year if they are available.  We are always looking for more volunteers.  The more volunteers, the better the coverage.
