Vancouver Pride Parade
Out on Campus will be marching with CJSF in this years Vancouver Pride Parade. CJSF’s float will be located in spot EE10 – That’s in Section E, on the East side, float number 10. Section E is on Thurlow Street, between Robson St. and Alberni St. We will be meeting at 11:30, and all marchers much arrive by 12:00pm (noon) at the latest.
Notes on accessibility: There is a float, but anyone who rides on the float must stay on the float for the entire length of the parade – there is to be no getting on or off of the vehicle while the parade is in motion – safety first! Also, this is a fairly long event, we will probably not reach the dispersal area until ~3:00pm, please bring water with you!
Please let Allison know if you plan on attending so she can pass on the numbers to CJSF, or if you have any questions/need a map of the holding area. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
