Title: Middletown 4th of July Parade
Post by: sticksout on June 13, 2018, 06:30:19 AM
Is anyone anyone interested in participating again this year? It's a nice parade that snakes down Route 11 into historic Middletown and then back out through a neighborhood. For those who participated in the Apple Blossom Parade...you won't be speeding thru this one.

Parade starts at 5pm on July 4th from Lord FFX Community College (staging opens at 3pm).

The parade route flows through the town of Middletown, beginning from the parking lot of Lord Fairfax Community
College (LFCC). From LFCC, the parade flows south on Main Street (Route 11), turns east on Fifth Street, north on Church
Street and ends at First Street. The route is approximately one mile long.

Ok, sorry to wait so long on this one, and hopefully we haven't missed the deadline, but my wife and I can help out.  Two Jeeps.  We'll each have a passenger to help with the waving, lol.

The first person to get there will be given the club's "spot" number and directed where to park. Whenever the rest of you get there, tell the person w/clipboard the same thing and they'll direct you accordingly (you just won't get a number).

-It is important that you keep your unit in motion at all times. No gaps and no stopping to perform other than at the judges’ stand located in front of the fire station (maximum time 2 minutes to perform).

The storm parked itself right above us and unleashed a very large amount of rain. Folks are soaking from head to toe. I hope everyone makes it home ok.

We're still up in Stephen City, grabbing some food, after a stop for dry clothes at the dollar store, lol. We look awesome! Gonna have to get the shop vac out when we get home, but they'll dry. Sorry we got rained out.

Sorry to hear about the rain! Last year the skies opened up just shortly after the parade ended...I had just gotten the top and windows back in.

Hope you all still had a good time though.
