REGISTRATION/CHECK IN WILL BEGIN AT 10 AM ON THE DAY OF THE PARADE.
Registration and line-up for marchers and push pull floats is located under the tents on 21st Street and Surf Avenue. Remember, the later you get there, the longer the lines!
This year we will have two separate assembly areas for marchers to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the experience. We have our traditional Artsy area, where anything goes (within reason of course), loud music, some nudity and lots of revelry. We will have a separate area for our Family Friendly Marchers that include great activities for the kids, little to no nudity and no loud music.
Registration and line-up for Antique Cars and Motorized Floats is in the Eastbound Parking Lane of Surf Avenue between West 21 St and West 22nd St.
