The LGBRC will participate in the Los Gatos 61st Annual
Parade on December 2, 2017. This parade
is longest-running children’s parade
in the US. Our participation in it reminds
the Town of Los Gatos that they are the home
of a USA Cycling’s Club of the Year and
the Mike’s Bikes Cat’s Hill Classic on Saturday April 28, 2018.
Assemble: We will meet in
our designated space #67. It is on Tait between Bachman and Almendra. Click for map.
Although the parade begins “promptly” at
11:00 AM and we theoretically have to be in
our place by 9:00 AM to hold our place, plan
to arrive about 10:30 am in the parade staging
area with bicycles and selves decorated in
holiday fashion, wearing the current 2017 LGBRC
clothing! We will be awarding 2018 jerseys
for the best holiday decorated bike and helmet; voting will take place by 10:30.
When our turn to walk in the parade arrives we will walk
and/or ride up the street behind our LGBRC
banner. The parade ends on Main Street near
the Toll Gate apartments.
Rain: Although heavy or constant
rain cancels the parade, threat of rain or
intermittent showers does not cancel the parade.
After we finish marching/riding in the parade, LGBRC holiday parade participants
(only) are welcome to enjoy free pizza party at JJ
MAGOO'S PIZZA (same place as the
last few years) located at 15525
LOS GATOS BLVD, Los Gatos, 408-358-2000.
Look for Fed-Ex (Kinko's) and McDonald's on
the west side of Los Gatos Blvd: JJ Magoo's
is located right behind. Note that this event
is for LGBRC members and their immediate families.
Please no neighbors, no random FaceBook friends,
no lost relatives, etc.
RSVP so that we will know how many folks to plan on. The first members to arrive at JJ Magoo's Pizza can order large-size pizzas to get things going.
streets immediately surrounding the staging
area (Bachman, Wilder, Tait, Almendra)
will be closed, but you may park near the
top of the Cat's Hill course, on Nicholson,
Belmont, or Ellenwood. You may access those
streets through Massol. Another option
is to park nearer the final destination.
MAGOO'S PIZZA -
see location below. (Watch for 'no parking'
signs in merchants' lots, however.) Residential
streets that intersect Los Gatos Blvd.
near Main Street are good possibilities
since you will have your bike
for transportation to the staging area.
After the parade, you may then ride your
bike back to your car and then drive to JJ
Kim and Rich Hill at 408-623-8556 prior to parade day
if you have additional questions.
