McDonald’s Magic City Classic Parade October 28, 2017

In order for this parade to be successful all participants are required to adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. All parade participants must be at their designated line-up areas by 7:00 am to be lined up by the Parade Marshals.

  2. Parade participant/vehicle with parade permits should enter their assigned section according to the lineup map (enclosed in packet). Only participants with a parade permit will be allowed to enter blocked intersections.

  3. Parade Permits (ORIGINAL) should be displayed on the driver side of the front windshield. Walking and marching units should have their parade permit on their person. – NO EXCEPTIONS! A parade permit is required for every unit, and this will be STRICTLY ENFORCED!

a. Parade Permits CANNOT be duplicated or transferred. The entity on the permit MUST be the one participating in the parade.

  1. The parade is a family event – no vulgar or offensive language or signs will be tolerated.

  2. Buses for marching bands – We will send separately, the parking location for buses based on their parade section.

  3. The Magic City Classic Parade will start promptly at 8:00 am.

  4. Please, NO CANDY OR OTHER FAVORS should be thrown or handed out by the parade participants! These practices can result in injuries to children scrambling for candy or falling under moving vehicles. Violators of this request will be removed from the parade and barred from future Magic City Classic Parades. Remember that candy/prize throwing/handing creates a safety hazard for our children!

  5. All cars and floats should be fully decorated with display signs on both sides stating the name of the organization, etc.

  6. The Birmingham Police Department will patrol all areas of the parade.

  7. Parade Marshals – are assigned to each section to ensure that these instructions are followed. All participants MUST follow the orders of the Parade Marshals!!!

  8. The 2017 parade route is published on our website and enclosed in your packet.

  9. KEEP MOVING! No stoppages are allowed in the parade. If your unit violates this rule, you will be removed from the parade immediately

  10. Disbanding – The parade ends at the corner of 16th street and 6th Ave. Please QUIT playing/dancing at this point, and continue to walk straight back in to the staging area so you do not create a stoppage in the parade. If your group needs to gather and situate prior to exiting the staging area, please do so on one of the side street areas, NOT on 16th street. If you are a motorized unit, you will need to take a left on 6th Avenue (at the end of the parade). At this point, you have officially completed the parade. If you need to adjust anything on your vehicle for transport, you will need to do so at an area OUTSIDE of the parade route and staging area.


Have a great time and enjoy, but most of all be safe and courteous to each other!

Participating in the parade means acceptance of all of these guidelines. Any violation to the guidelines or marshals directions on parade day will result in immediate removal from the parade. No refunds will be given in the event a unit breaks a parade policy or neglects to follow any instructions given by parade marshals.
