Parades are a long-standing tradition of showing a Sea Scout Ship’s connection to a community. 2012 is a time for Sea Scout Ships to march in local parades across the country to showcase our Centennial.
Every Sea Scout Ship should participate in at least one parade in their community. Marching in a parade could simply be drilling as a Ship; providing a Color Guard; or even a fife and drum corps. Additionally, Sea Scouts can ride on floats, such as a whaleboat towed by a vehicle or other nautical themed design.
The 4th of July is an ideal time for Sea Scout Ships across the United States to march in local parades. From Philadelphia to Miami to Colorado, Sea Scouts can all march in parades honoring our Nation’s birthday in celebration of the Sea Scout Centennial.
Marching in parades increases awareness of Sea Scouts. More importantly, it is fun.
