Once you are on the float, you cannot disembark until the end on Philips Square. The exception is if there is an emergency situation.
If the weather is chilly, it is recommended to bring a blanket to cover your knees.
SALUTING and HATS off at the reviewing stand:
The reviewing stand is located on McGill College on north side of street. Bell Local TV is also filming the parade this year. They are on the south side of the street.
Once we reach the reviewing stand, we will all turn towards the reviewing stand and on my count of 3, remove your hat as a salute and wave.
