*Absolutely NO PARKING along any driveways or roads at Waverly Sales Company.
*Parade lineup begins at 8:30 AM on Saturday, July 16, 2016. Anyone arriving early will be directed to the back lot north of the Waverly Sales Company to lineup. Parade participants should gather elsewhere and come to the Waverly Sales Company as a group and not individually to avoid extra traffic during parade lineup and eliminate confusion as to where each entry is located.
*Parade organizers will instruct you where to lineup. Please treat them with respect, they are volunteers who help make the Waverly Heritage Days parade successful.
*ABSOLUTELY NO WATER GUNS, WATER BALLOONS OR ANY THROWING OF WATER FROM PARADE PARTICIPANTS DURING PARADE. PARTICIPANTS WITH ANY OF THESE WATER ITEMS WILL DUMP WATER BEFORE ENTERING PARADE OR WILL BE BARRED FROM THE PARADE!
*ABSOLUTELY NO DUMPING OF WATER OR SOAP MIXTURES ON THE STREET DURING PARADE. ANYONE DUMPING WATER OR SOAP WILL BE ASKED TO EXIT PARADE!

*At the end of the parade, continue with your float along 5th avenue and park on a side street to load or unload parade participants. DO NOT STOP on 5th avenue or park along that street. It makes it difficult to keep traffic going and the parade gets backed up if people stop to let people on and off the float. THANK YOU!
