General parking is available at the LMU Hannon Lot. You must enter the parking lot from Lincoln Blvd. at LMU Drive. NO CARS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER OR EXIT AT THE LOYOLA BLVD ENTRANCE/EXIT OF LMU. Once you’ve parked your car, you will need to walk south down Loyola Blvd. to the start of the parade (3/4 of a mile). As you know, Hannon Lot is a great place to park because when your entry has completed its travel down the parade route, you will end up at the Hannon Lot where your car is located.
CARPOOLING IS RECOMMENDED
PARENTS – Do we have anyone who can take pictures and/or videos during the parade?
Recommendations from your Drum Majors:
Only bring your instrument and store your cases in your car
Drink lots of water and eat breakfast prior to the parade as this will prevent all likeliness of fainting and dizziness during the parade
Wear sunscreen and bring sunglasses
Decorate your instruments or yourselves with patriotic items as this is a Fourth of July parade.
