Parade Line-Up Information
Thank you for participating in the 46th Can-Am International Festival on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 11:00am in
Sackets Harbor, NY. It promises to be another “Blockbuster Parade”.
Participating high school bands will receive a check for $225.00 show-up money at parade line-up. It is hoped
this will help defray travel costs. Judging will be provided by NNYPMJA. There will be someone to assist you
with locating your area beginning at 9:30am. Please arrive by 9:30am if possible. We will start moving the
parade right at 11:00am.
The location this year will be at the Sackets Harbor school fields on the Campbell’s Point Road (County Rt.
75). It will be easier if you come down Rt. 3 and turn onto County Rt. 75 to come to the school field. Someone
will be available to tell you what number your unit will be. The field will also be used to unload the buses and
as a practice area for the bands. Bathroom facilities will be available through the entrance at the back of the
school. Drivers, after unloading, can leave their buses parked at the school. It will be easier for you to get out
of the village if you park at the school. If you feel it is more convenient you may park buses at the Public
Safety Building on West Washington Street and Hill Street which is at the end of the parade route.
The parade route will leave Campbell’s Point Road (County Rt. 75) and continue to West Main Street where
you will make a left turn. The Reviewing Stand and Judges will be on the right at the foot of the hill at the
entrance to the public marina. Please continue in formation to the end of West Washington Street. At the
end of West Main Street the route will turn left onto Hill Street and continue across West Washington Street
past the Public Safety Building and left onto Jefferson Street. Please note – you will not be allowed to turn
left onto Ray Street. You must continue to the end of West Main Street then take a left.
A detailed schedule will be provided to the emcees. We would appreciate any fill-in material you can provide
on your entry. Please contact me by June 15, 2017 with your blurbs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Floats will be judged this year as in the past and money prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd places.
There will be a performance by Downbeat Percussion immediately following the parade. Judging will be
tabulated while they are performing. Awards will be presented in the street for Classes A, B and C as soon as
the judges complete their paperwork. Please designate a person to accept your award.
Following the parade and concert your group might enjoy the many activities planned for the day. Please see our schedule for a full listing of events.
