Labor Day Parade
Williams Stadium
September 5, 2016
7 am

Please join us in celebrating our Nations Laborers. It is thanks to them we have roads, cars, mines, textiles, groceries, and best of all air conditioning and water.

Pack 161 will be hosting a float for the parade and invite you to join us.
  We will be at Williams stadium in Downtown Garland at 7 am. We will BLING out the float and prep it for the festivities.
Our theme is Popping into Camping.

The float will be decorated with a tent, sleeping bags, a fake fire to "roast" mallows and "pop" corn. If you have any gear you would like to donate to deck us out please bring it along.  Your ideas for decoration are welcome and encouraged.

The scouts and their families will be able to indulge in yummy donuts and drinks while they work. Pack 161 will provide water to keep everybody hydrated in the BRUTAL Texas heat.

The parade is scheduled to begin at 9 am. We request that if you are riding with us on the float to arrive no later than 8 am. The Police will be closing off roads by then and it will be very difficult to find adequate parking.

Once our route concludes we will return to Williams Stadium to break down the float and stow the gear. When we are finished you may walk back to the parade and watch the conclusion with your families.

Thank you for your support of pack 161 we could not do it without YOU!
