Holiday Tips: Parades and Fireworks

  • Keep an eye on them - lots of activity going on and easy for them to roam and get lost

  • Bring something for them to stay occupied before the parade or event starts

  • Bring a bag for the candy and items that are distributed - don’t let them dart into the street to get candy - little fingers and toes can get stomped on very easily, and you don’t want them tripping and falling into the road

  • Little ears are sensitive so remember to bring either ear plugs or head phones as the sirens can get pretty loud

  • Sunscreen

  • let them take pictures of their favorite things in the parade

  • remember to have fun - if you are having fun, they will have fun
