2. Your marching order was assigned based on parade protocol for Veterans Day. Officially recognized military and congressionally recognized veteran service organizations march at the beginning of the parade followed by veteran organizations, community organizations and scouting groups. Some groups may not begin marching until 12:00pm. Therefore, if you have young children, a representative can check in early, having the children report to their assigned staging area at a later time. Children may gather along Main Street at their respective staging location to watch the parade and then get into the parade lineup closer to their step-off time. A parade line-up will be available on our website (https://www.auburnwa.gov/cms/one.aspx?portalId=11470638&pageId=13102507&objectId.253644=13559504&contextId.253644=13102509&parentId.253644=13102510&ref=mesTP9fg96fVsgzpWYeogJ2bvgrCU1eV8%2fG6tc4QbeI%3d)(click for PDF)next week and will be continually updated, as the event approaches.
