Join Surfrider Galveston this year as we dance in the umbrella parade and show off our Bag Monsters!
This is our chance to gain recognition and support for all of our causes but especially the Bring The Bag campaign.
Build Bag Monsters and Umbrellas before the parade (see details below).
Meet at the Proletariat @ 6pm to walk in together!!
Things to note:
--Every person must have a decorated umbrella to enter the parade zone.
--In previous years they did not allow wagons, strollers, or coolers in the parade zone.
--Judges are positioned on the balcony above Gracie's (23rd & Strand) to judge each team's theme, costumes, and dance moves.
--The winning team receives 30 balcony tickets to party into the night until 1a.
--There are porta-potties and beer/food vendors inside the parade zone.
