**The DJ'd double decker bus that will be following us in the parade is reserved for donors, sponsors and committee members. If you want to access the double decker bus, you must make an additional tax-deductible donation of at least $100 by clicking HERE. This extra donation will also grant you access to top deck of the Dance on the River cruise ship where the DJ booth and private cocktail bar will be. You must have a Special Access Wristband to get on the bus or the private top deck of the ship.
Please be advised: The step-off time for marchers could be a short or it could be a long wait. Literally hours. If you lack patience, we suggest making other plans. The double decker bus is reserved and intended for those with mobility issues, elders, donors and event sponsors.
We suggest bringing: comfortable sneakers, light clothing and sunscreen/sunblock. This year's group color is purple!
