All visitors must stop by the tables to sign in and put on a visitors sticker. If you are taking your child(ren) home after the parade, please mark the BOX that will be on the sign-out sheet. We appreciate your cooperation.
Students should wear attire they will be able to parade in without tripping.
Students should wear costumes that are wholesome in nature.
Please avoid “bloody” costumes, scary masks, or weapons (real or pretend).
