Columbia Veteran’s Day Parade
November 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Post 6 ALR and the PGR will ride together as an entry in the annual parade. Other ALR Chapters are more than welcome to ride along as well! Our entry is for motorcycles/trikes only. Others are invited to ride the trolley with our Post 6 Family.
Staging Area: Post 6, 200 Pickens Street, Columbia http://tinyurl.com/3rd7dwg
Staging Time: 0830 (8:30am); KSU: 0900 (9:00am)
Parade Start Time: 1045 (10:45am) down Sumter Street.
We will depart the Post as a group and move to the parade staging area a couple of hours before the parade actually starts, so you must remain flexible. We will remain in the parade staging area for an extended period of time. Fly your big flags if you have them. This is a slow paced parade of about 8 blocks. Upon completion of the parade route we will proceed back to Post 6 for a wonderful BBQ lunch courtesy of Post 6 American Legion.
NOTE: Organizers have asked all motorcycle groups to avoid unnecessary revving of the engines due to young and old spectators. If you participate, please be mindful of this request, so that we do not jeopardize future participation. Additionally, for safety reasons no candy will be allowed to be thrown from the parade and all bikes must stay in formation and not pull off along the parade route except for emergencies.
In case of inclement weather pay attention to media, as they have cancelled the parade in the past.
