The parade begins promptly at 10:00am and follows the usual route from the corner of Windbridge and South Land Park Drive, south on Windbridge and right on Pocket Road, ending at the entrance of Garcia Bend Park.

With an event of this size, it is necessary to close roads along the parade route, and staging area to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy the parade safely.

Music for Kids on the Del Rio Trail with Jillian Van Ness

Here’s an interesting event going on just outside of our neighborhood boundaries:

Bring your 0-5 year olds and join children’s musician Jillian Van Ness of Grow Resilient Families for a fun morning of live music-making on the trail! Jillian will reveal some of her new, original songs inspired by the Del Rio Trail in this 30-minute, interactive class.

Bring your shakers/instruments (even a tupperware container filled w/ dried beans, car keys, or two sticks picked up along the trail will work beautifully!)

snack/lunch, water bottles to enjoy after music
wear sturdy, close-toed shoes as the site is under construction
