What will happen at the Parade?

The parade will make a circle, starting at the Reality Ministries Center parking lot, going through Main St, and then returning to the Center (about 1/2 mile or a 15 minute leisurely roll/walk). After the parade, visit some of the informational tables, some of which will feature businesses which hire people with disabilities. Purchase a simple dinner; they are planning vegan, vegetarian and omnivore options.  Sensory friendly spaces and bathrooms inside the Reality Center building provide a way to beat the heat. A schedule of amazing speakers will share “what makes them proud to be Disabled”; unfold your chair and relax as you listen.

The event will be fully outside (except a sensory room and cool down space inside). There will be room for social distancing, and masks are encouraged.
The whole event and parade route are completely wheelchair accessible. There is also a detour in the parade route for people who need to only walk 1/2 of it.
An ASL interpreter will be present for all of the speakers.
There will be a Zoom option to watch speakers for those who cannot attend in person. More details to follow!
A huge thank you to Tatum Tricarico and McRae Scott for organizing and leading this exciting event!
