Christmas Parade instructions

posted Dec 5, 2013, 1:09 PM by Natalie Outlaw

For those participating in the Christmas parade THIS Sunday with Troop 159 please wear your Class A uniform shirt with warm layers underneath.  The scouts will be sitting on hay bales on the trailers when they are not driving the PET cars. The weather is supposed to be partly cloudy, high of 47 with a slight chance of rain.  The parade will go on rain or shine.  

Drop-off Option #1:

  • Arrive at lineup NO LATER THAN 1:30 PM.  If you are late you may be left.  Please allow extra time for and expect lots of traffic.  Carpool with others if possible.
  • Lineup is on the TAMU campus in lot 50.  Drop off parking is available in lot 51.  These lots are next to each other - 50 on the left and 51 on the right.  
  • Go down University towards campus and take a left onto Bizzell at the light at South College. Take the first left which will be onto the street that runs between Lots 50 and 51.  Park in lot 51 on the RIGHT and walk over to float in lot 50 on row A in spot #12.
  • Drop-off parking areas are short term only. If you are planning on leaving your vehicle until returning after the parade, you need to make other arrangements, and not use the drop-off parking area for this purpose. Please leave your vehicle parked here for as short a time as possible, just long enough to walk to the float location and back again.
