Lineup will begin at 9:30am. Use Prairie Street to get to the parking lot at the corner of Prairie and Grove for lineup. There will be staff in the area to assist and direct you. Kickoff is at 11am. We will head up Riverside Drive, make a right on Chicago, right on Grove, basically making a circle and ending where we began. Wear your UUCE Pride shirt or wear of our rainbow bandanas that we’ll bring. We’ll have a brand-new banner to carry, plus colorful, recycled Mardi Gras beads to pass out along the route (handed out directly, not thrown).
Thank you to everyone who signed up to help set up, staff and take down our table! In addition to visiting with festival attendees about our wonderful UUCE community, we’ll be inviting people to participate in a Seven Day Gratitude Journal Challenge and passing out rainbow Skittles candy and UU literature.
If you ordered a shirt, we’ll be in touch to get yours to you ahead of 6/3.
More details to come, or feel free to reach out to Jen or myself and we’ll do our best to answer.
