Load floats and tailgate 9:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. at Calloway-Smith Middle School (350 N. Lawrence St.—off Broad, behind the old Mobile Press Register building). If you get to Calloway-Smith School before the floats arrive, please park in front of the school and not in the grass where the floats will be stationed for loading. Please do not allow children on the floats. If we can’t load at Calloway-Smith because of weather, we’ll load at the Conde Cavaliers float barn (Broad St. at the entrance to Brookley); watch your emails and contact your float captain for more details.
Pre-parade party at the Convention Center (not Civic Center) 4-5:30 p.m. on the top floor. You can park in the parking deck under the Convention Center. We will start our foot march to the floats at 5:30 p.m. Meet in front of the Convention Center and bring some throws to toss on the march if you’d like.
Also, please note that we will not have access to the restrooms at Expo Hall (Civic Center) after our foot march from the Convention Center to the floats. There will be portable restrooms that the city puts out.
