Kiddie Parade, Reverse Style!

Kids 6 and under – goody bags for registered kids 6 and under

Date: Thursday September 17

Time: 5:30 – 6:30pm greeting vehicles

Set-up: 4:30 – 5:00pm
Location: Bethel Lutheran Church/School

Address: 325 E Queenwood Rd

This year’s Kiddie Parade will be a Reverse Parade with the children riding by in vehicles while characters, police/fire department, and others stand and wave. This year’s event is targeted for 6 and under and each child will receive a goody bag. We are wondering if your Pre-K, K & 1st grade teachers might be interested in being a part of the line-up greeting the kids as they drive by. Many likely have siblings that know you!

Keeping your group to 5 or less will help us manage social distancing! Invite them to wear the school colors, pom poms, and any other visual fun!
