You may download the appropriate parade staging instructions from this page. The instructions vary by color, as defined above. The parade is in a pre-set order, but that order is up to the Parade Marshals; when you arrive you will be put in the proper order in the staging area, or told when your unit will be inserted into the parade (in the case of car clubs and special groups, for instance).
The MARSHALS will march with your division, maintaining the order and keeping the flow going. Remember, NO STOPPING DURING THE PARADE FOR ANY REASON (other than a public emergency).
The Map Document is the same for all units.
If you have any questions about your division or staging area, please call 410-879-4245 or send us an e-mail IMMEDIATELY. Here is a map of the Staging Area, showing its basic orientation and organization. ALL UNITS MUST REPORT TO THE "FOUR STAR" INTERSECTION at S. Main/Emmorton Road and Macphail.
