Parade Details

If you are planning to participate in the parade on Saturday, here's what you need to know.

  1. Bring a water bottle.  We will have water on the trailer for refills, but you will need to bring a container with you.
  2. You can wear any shorts/pants you choose, and we will bring your EYT shirt for you to wear.  You will have to change in the staging area, so prepare accordingly.
  3. 5th grade and up will dance most of the route.  Plan your shoes appropriately.
  4. Bring/wear sunscreen.  You can also wear a hat.  Our shirts will be green if that is something that matters to you.
  5. Plan to be DROPPED OFF at the parade staging area, which is the parking lot of the LDS church located at the intersection of 8400 West and 3100 South.  (Near Magna Elementary)  Just look for the EYT group; we shouldn't be too terribly difficult to find.
  6. We are going to have a TON of fun!  
For anyone who wants to brush up on the dance, here is a video followed by a cheat sheet for exactly how to Ease on Down!
