Viewing for the Disabled
A special viewing area for disabled guests will open at 10:30 am at the
southeast corner of 8th and Market streets. The area is "fenced off" by bike
racks, protecting attendees from jostling crowds, and includes
two wheelchair accessible port-o-potties, as well as some chairs, which are
available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are neither bleachers
nor risers; please bring your own chairs. The area is in the shade and can
be quite chilly, so be sure to dress in weather appropriate layers. Disabled
guests can park for free on 8th Street, south of Market, with a Disabled
Parking permit only. Additional disabled parking, for a fee, is available in
the Stadium West Garage, at 8th and Walnut streets. If you have
additional questions about disabled viewing area, feel free to email
the Coordinator of Viewing for the Disabled.
Should parents and children get separated, please advise a parade volunteer in your area, who will contact Parade Emergency Services. Lost children may be taken to Emergency Services headquarters until their parents are located.
