Parade registration deadline: April 21, 2017
Our Pride Day Celebration is kicked off with a fantastic, amazing, super high energy parade filled with marching bands, religious groups, GSA's, floats, animals, motorcycles, you name it they are in the parade!
We march into the Pride event site where the party continues all day! Come join us and celebrate yourself!
You cannot choose the order you will be in the parade. Please direct your special needs to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your organization’s name, and your contact information, so we can address your request.
Your contingent’s general position within the parade order will be sent via e-mail to the contact name who initially registered. This notification and its accompanying map will contain your staging color, staging location, suggested arrival time, and most efficient access point for arriving at your designated spot. You will need to print out the staging color form and bring it with you to prove your group is registered.
It is paramount that you review and disseminate this information to all the participants in your contingent. As a general discussion, the staging area and entry points are defined below.
NO HORSES OR HORSE DRAWN VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED
ASSIGNED STAGING AREAS
Arrive at your specific colored staging area between 9:00 am and 11:00 am. DO NOT arrive earlier than 9:00am.
MOTORCYCLES staging area (red) is located on Hampton Ave. with overflow onto Pleasant Street. Enter Hampton Ave. from Pleasant Street.
FLOATS (any vehicle, bicycle, scooter) staging area (purple) is located on Hampton Ave. with overflow onto Pleasant Street. Enter Hampton Ave. from Pleasant Street.
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.
Bring water and sunscreen.
