You won’t want to miss it. Fun for the whole family!
There are three ways you can celebrate with us:
What should I expect?
Think Bayside meets hometown parade with a drive in’s style! If you have ever been to the Drive- in movie theater this is just like that…but you are waiting for a parade instead of a movie. You come, park your car and get ready for the parade. There are a lot of ways to enjoy the parade… You can watch outside your car just bring a blanket and lawn chairs or you can sit in your trunk, or you can watch from inside your car and never get out! The Parade will have classic cars, homemade floats, fun cars, marching bands, First Responders, special characters, and much more. So whether you are in, out or in front of your vehicle- you are in for a treat.
Will there be food?
We will have Food and snack vendors onsite to purchase. If you are not comfortable leaving your car we encourage you to bring your own food and snacks.
What time is the parade?
Parade will start the route at 7pm. Parking lot will close at 6:45, so make sure that you are on our campus parked and ready to go by 6:30! Parking lots will open up at 5:30 for you to enjoy some of the Food trucks and other fun entertainment as you wait.
Will it be safe?
Park and Pumpkin Parade is a great alternative event in our current situation. You can just park your car and wait for the parade and never get out, or you can park your car and enjoy some of the food truck options.
Are there bathrooms?
Nope. Just kidding. Our church will be open for you to use our facilities.
Will there be candy?
Yes and sort of…there will be candy tossed from the floats in a safe manner. Will you leave with a Uhaul full of candy, not likely, but you will have a great time enjoying this family friendly parade!
