Boo Haa Haa Participants take Note (and thanks for doing this!):
We need to be there around 9-9:15 to set up the float at church at St. Mary's.
The 2018 BooHaHa Parade is right around the corner and we are excited to have you be a part of our 28th year!
New this year, Channel 2 (KJRH) will be live-streaming this parade and iHeart Radio - 106.1-The Twister will be back to broadcast also! Great partners to spread the fun to all!!
Please note there are some very important changes this year, including the parade will start at 11:00am! It is most important that you note your arrival time at Church of Saint Mary's parking lot. The police will be closing Peoria at 10:00am, so please be on time! All entries into the formation area will turn off Peoria to 48th Street, turn right on Quaker St (Henthorne Park) and proceed to the back entry of the parking area of the church. Only the vehicle/float registered in the parade will be allowed in the formation area...………we don't have room!! If you have a single vehicle (not pulling a float), please back into the parking spaces - facing forward, to allow ease of entry. And please note the direction of the parade beginning (49th Street), we will proceed accordingly. We will start judging entries at 10:15am in the formation area, and presenting awards prior to the parade start.
Finally, this parade is all about costumes and family fun.....please decorate your entry, walkers, vehicle, etc...… and get in the true spirit of BooHaHa~ Please note that there is absolutely NO THROWING of candy or any item at the crowd.....you may place an item in someone's hands only.....but keep pace with your entry!
