March parades are always a little unpredictable, when it comes to weather. If it is cold, please remember to bring your hat, scarf, and gloves so that we can have a warm, enjoyable parade!
Each dancer must be accompanied by an adult chaperone throughout the parade. The chaperones will be marching behind the dancers and are not required to wear the students’ mandatory attire, although Weber Pride is always appreciated.
