The parade route will begin at Pleasant Grove High School, (700 E 200 S.)  All entries will enter at the bottom of the High School parking lot, off of Locust Avenue (approximately 450 E 250 S).  Then travel west down 200 S to 100 E.  Turn Left go 1 block, turn right, go 1 block then turn right onto Main street.  Travel North down Main street to Center Street.  Turn left and travel West down center until the railroad tracks.  Turn right after the railroad tracks into the parking lots available. All horse trailers are encouraged and welcome to park at the Eagles building on 600 W. Do not encourage people on horses to cross State Street and ride to the rodeo grounds.  This is too dangerous!

RULES

  1. No one will be allowed to drive up the staging area of the parade except the actual entries.

This also includes all parents dropping off their dancers, karate kids, decorating cars, people dropping off water bottles etc.  Parents will not be allowed to drive into the line-up staging area.

  1. Nothing can be thrown from an entry. Please notify all participants of this rule. We encourage you to walk along the sides and hand out flyers, candy etc. but no throwing. No water guns, or ballooning. Please don’t throw anything for your safety and liability as well as those of the viewers.
  2. If your entry requires dancing, karate, cheering etc. please plan your routines in a manner that has constant forward motion. There will be no stopping for unloading, performing a routine and starting again. This will cut down on the complaint of gaps as well, insure the safety of your participants during loading and unloading. Officers will exit any entries not complying at the nearest corner.
  3. There will be no vehicles larger than a truck pulling a small trailer. No 18 wheel vehicles.
