Due to this year being the 40th Anniversary we are throwing it back to the 70’s with "Can You Dig It? 40 Years of Movin’ & Groovin'." We would like to encourage everyone in attendance to get in the groove and bust out your best 70’s outfits. To register your group to walk in the Parade, please click on the following link:
