Olympic Parade This Friday 4/1!

Drop Off Info:

Drop off will be at the Wasatch Brewpub parking lot at the top of Main St (250 Main St). Skaters must be there by 4:30pm. The easiest drop off would be using Marsac and dropping off on top of China bridge. If you arrive early there should be parking available there, or take public transportation from the high school.  This is going to be a packed event so plan to be early.

Look for our club banner and wear club attire or Team USA/Olympic gear. Skating dresses encouraged too!

Additional Info: 

  • Parade begins at 5pm and ends at the bottom of Main St.

  • 5:45 Olympians and Paralympians will be honored on stage

  • 6-7 concert, autographs, bbq food and beer garden. Bring items to sign if you want autographs!

  • Setting a meeting point is a good idea to meet at the end of the parade.

  • Parents of younger skaters are welcome to walk in the parade. Many of our older skaters/Junior Board will be there and will be available to pair up with younger skaters if parents are meeting at the end.
