Apex Holiday Parade December 1st
Please read this newsletter carefully. If you have any questions please email me as soon as possible. Thank you!
Parents, it is important that you could take your child to the restroom prior to signing them in for the parade!
TCE Chorus will meet at 3:30 pm at our Line up number, #49. Parents, it isn’t difficult to locate us. There are many volunteers that are in place to assist you in finding our number. Please try to be in line by 4:00 pm because most of the roads close at 4pm. Remember: the parade starts promptly at 5pm!
The parade goes on rain or shine. We will line up on Ambergate Station Rd entering from Hunter St (In front of the Apex Town Hall/Community Center). Take Rt. 64 to Old Raleigh Road which becomes Hunter St. There will be volunteers and police officers placed at the entrance to Hunter and Ambergate Station and they will help guide you to our place in the parade. After dropping off your child at our line up number our parents typically meet toward the end of the parade on Salem Street. Please do not come up Laura Duncan because it gets too backed up, the bands and Commercial rented floats come up that way. No vehicles are allowed on Ambergate Station unless they are entries in the parade. For everyone’s safety The Apex Peakway is closed to vehicle traffic.
Please ensure you sign your child in with a chaperone, prior to leaving your child on our float. You also need to make sure you sign your child out with that same chaperone at the end of our parade route.
The parade ends and disbands at the bottom of Moore St. by the Apex Public Works building near the CC Jones building. We cannot stop on Salem St or on the hill for safety reasons. When our floats arrive at the spot where we turn the corner off Salem Street, I ask that parents follow us walking behind and beside our floats to where we end. Again, please remember to sign out your child with the same chaperone you signed them in.
There will be a police officer at 55 to help you exit.
* Dress Attire: Chorus T-Shirts with red, green or white shirts underneath our chorus t-shirts and holiday hats. This parade begins in the evening your child may wear light up necklaces or hats. Please check the weather and ensure your child dress warmly and comfortably.
Parents, we need you! We need Chaperones! Please email me if you would love to join us as a chaperone for our parade. Please email if me if you can assist us with this.
