We are looking for members to walk the route with us, or ride on the float if unable to walk.  The parade kicks off at noon at 103rd Street and Western Avenue, and the route is approximately 1 ½ mile(s). We would love to see you on March 12!

  • You must be a prior participant of GCC to participate on the GCC float.
  • The parade will begin at noon from 103rd and Western Avenue and proceed south to 115th Street.
