Victoria Day Parade - Monday May 21st
Calling all Victoria BMX riders!!
Riders will assemble in Section C Entry #52 located on Finlayson by Dodds Furniture. Please be there no later than 8:45am. Our float will be there well in advance to see. For drop off, please use the Blanshard street entrance to Mayfair Mall and proceed to the ToysRUs store entrance area. Drop off only - no parking at this location.
As we are promoting Victoria BMX, we encourage all riders who have Victoria BMX Jerseys or t-shirts to wear them over any other long sleeve garment. We really would like to promote our club with as many riders as possible being in the same colours.
Parade Route is along Douglas. We ask that riders 10 and under have an adult walk the route with them and those 11 and up have an adult meet them at the end of the parade which is in front of the Convention Centre on Douglas Street.
IMPORTANT - Parents are responsible for meeting their children at the end of the parade route. We cannot be responsible for getting anyone back to the start location.
If anyone has or knows of anyone who has access to a Bobcat, please contact us!! We are also looking for a roofer's blow torch.
