Marching in community parades is a great way for us to get our message out, to generate interest in membership, and to get some good exercise, too!
The Democratic Party of Ozaukee County will be marching in 3 parades this summer:
- Saturday, June 24th, at 10:30am for “Family Fun Before the Fourth” in Thiensville.
- Tuesday, July 4th, at 10:00am for Independence Day in Cedarburg.
- Saturday, July 15th, at 10:00am for “Fish Day” in Port Washington.
We will meet in the staging area around 30 – 60 minutes before each parade. Further details on where/when to meet will be emailed to you about each parade you sign up for below.
There will be some pre-made signs available (e.g. for Tammy Baldwin), but we could use some home-made signs, as well. Feel free to create and bring your own signs! Please make sure the signs are positive. For example, “Preserve our affordable health care” as opposed to “Trumpcare is an abomination.” This is at the request of the parade organizers, and it’s also a smart strategy for campaigning in conservative-leaning areas.
Family members and friends who are not current party members are welcome to march with you! If you will be bringing guests then please specify their names in the space provided.
