MARCHERS(walkers, bands) staging areas (orange,yellow,green,blue) will be located in the parking lot across from the Northampton Brewery. Look for a Noho Pride volunteer with your color flag. ​Marchers enter the staging area from Conz Street or Hampton Ave. 

Once you enter into your colored staging area, seek the Noho Pride volunteer (they will be holding a colored flag) and they will check you off of the registration listing. IF YOU ARE NOT ON THE REGISTRATION LIST, YOUR GROUP OR FLOAT WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE.
