92nd Annual May Fete Children's Parade

92nd Annual May Fete Parade

Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 10am, Downtown Palo Alto, University Avenue

Let me be your neighbor!

               care, connect, community

“It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be that neighbor?” Mr. Rogers was right, having caring neighbors is vital to nurturing children and youth and that’s why a “Caring Neighborhood” is so important in the development of a healthy community. A “neighborhood” is where you live, your school, faith group, sports team or club, or any other group of individuals. What’s important is that it’s a place where people care and connect with each other to create a supportive community.

The 92nd Annual May Fête Parade theme encourages participants to showcase good neighborly behavior. What can we do, how does it look and who can we help? Show us that fun neighborly activity, let us see how to help and let us all know how we can be a good neighbor in our community. Let’s make all our communities fun, happy and supportive groups of individuals caring for each other.

Don’t have a group to march with?....

No problem, just show up at the check-in table on Emerson at University by 9:30am on parade day and march with the KIDS ON PARADE category. Kids can march in a costume related to the theme (use your imagination and creativity), on their bikes, trikes, scooters, skates, or anything else with wheels (no motorized), or come with your four-legged friends. Note: Pet safety is very important. Please make sure all pets are on leashes or appropriately housed: be sure to bring water in case your pet gets thirsty and bags to pick up any (ah-hem) refuse.
