The West Seattle Parade is coming up on July 18th. We usually meet on California near the Safeway, but we will let you know once we have confirmation. We have invited all other scouts in the area to join us so this might be a big event.
Traditionally the scouts walk from the start to the end. Siblings are encouraged to attend. Parents or guardians are a must to be with the scouts to get keep them aligned, watered down and most importantly to pick them up at the end. It is challenging to shuttle the scouts back to the start due to the crowds, so it is best to carpool with other families and leave a car at the end.
The scouts are encouraged to bring bikes, scooters, cub mobiles or other items like that as long as they bring protective gear. We will need the scouts to pass out candy along the way. Additionally we will have two rocket launchers in the parade this year so we will need dedicated scouts to help pump, pass out eye protection, load the launchers and assist the kids from the crowd.
…and we have something new this year!
Cub Scout Recycled Bucket Drum Corps!
This group will be for any age scout. The scouts will meet with scout leaders 3-4 times prior to the parade for practice. One of the leaders is an actual drum instructor! Location details and times are TBD. The scout would carry a bucket (think Home Depot) and play some basic beats on the bottom. Drums, sticks and instruction are provided. Scouts just need to bring a great attitude!
No Experience Necessary!
