On March 8th, come to Monroe Park a little early to pick up your bling at the gazebo, get a snack, and enjoy the band before the festivities start at 3:00.
The festivities will start promptly at 3 PM with speakers and live music before our final parade instructions.
The route is about 2.5 miles total with very little elevation. We will stroll to the Virginia State Capitol, assemble on the steps for a photo session to record the historic moment, and then return to Monroe Park to hear from our final speakers. The team did a test run of the route without a break in the middle and found it to be a very comfortable distance.
Anyone who wants to be in the photo at the Virginia State Capitol without participating in the parade can arrange for a Richmond pedicab (804-286-2330), Über, lyft, or drive and park a second time. There will be plenty of time to do so as the parade participants make their way to the Virginia Capitol.
