Coconino Community College is asking for your support and participation in this year’s annual Independence Day Celebration Parade held in Historic Downtown Flagstaff. CCC’s Community Education, Outreach and Engagement Department in conjunction with the CCC Alumni & Friends Club are reaching out to all students, faculty, staff and friends
Below are ways to help:
Decorating the pick-up truck parade entry. We meet 8 AM – 5 PM, Tuesday, July 2 and Wednesday July 3 outside, under the roof of the Facilities/Shipping & Receiving back area on the Lone Tree Campus. The decoration celebration continues until the truck is looking patriotic, festive and fun; dressed in red, white and blue.
Participating in the parade. Volunteers ride on the back of the CCC pick-up truck or walk along the side of the truck and hand out candies to parade spectators or hold a sign. DRESS in red, white and blue; wear a CCC shirt and/or CCC hat or even better dress in a uniform. We would like to showcase the college’s career and technical education and workforce development programs by having folks dress as nurses, EMTs, firefighters, lab techs, solar panel installers, green builders/construction management workers, graduates in caps and gowns, etc… We meet at 7:30 AM, Thursday, July 4th outside, under the roof of the Facilities/Shipping & Receiving back area on the Lone Tree Campus. We head downtown at 7:40 AM SHARP!
THE PARADE ROUTE STARTS AT BEAVER & ELM: Beaver to Aspen, Aspen to San Francisco, San Francisco to Elm.
Removing the decorations from the pick-up truck and returning them back into boxes for use again in next year’s 4th of July Parade. After the parade concludes we meet outside, under the roof of the Facilities/Shipping & Receiving back area on the Lone Tree Campus to dismantle the parade entry.
