If you are local, and would like to participate, please PM me. I've registered for our bus + 5. With enough interest/notice, I can get space for up to 12. The parade has grown each year, and is now large (2+ hr.s?) and is televised.
This parade is very fond of vintage cars and clubs. I've only seen one VW (a herbie bug) in it ever, and thought it was time our citizens were treated to some vintage buses!... and the city agreed. In fact they are thrilled. Pre '67's only please.
It's all over by 11 at the latest, and I'm considering a post-parade BBQ. Please contact me (soon!) if your up for this.

Thanks in advance, Dave

Cool Let me know. I know it's tough being a holiday and all, but it starts/ends early, leaving plenty of time to go celebrate after.

I'd love to lead a contingent of NUTS down for your celebrations there dave, but realistically, the chances are pretty slim.

In past years the parade started at 10 AM in front of El Toro High School at Toledo and Ridge Route. Where is the staging area for the cars? Away from the horses, I'd gather. Kiwanis has done a pancake breakfast at the high school before also.
