Saving a Spot for 4th of July Parade

The City of Greeley Culture, Parks and Recreation Department is reminding residents and visitors of their guidelines on when and how to save a spot to enjoy the 4th of July Parade.

The Parks Division will be conducting maintenance, including areas along the parade route, up until Wednesday, July 3. As such, their recommendations are:

  1. Refrain from saving any spaces until after 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3.
  2. Do not place any kind of tape, strings attached to stakes, tarps, plastic, or blankets on the grass, sidewalks, or other hard surfaces. They become tripping hazards and cause damage to grass and solid surfaces. These items will be removed as they impede Park staffs’ ability to continue with maintenance.
  3. Do not use any type of paint on sidewalks or other hard surfaces to save a spot along the route.

You may use chalk instead when marking spaces on sidewalks and hard surfaces, but nothing on the grassy areas.

There will be signage at Lincoln Park and City Hall along the parade route asking for cooperation. Have a fun and safe time at the 4th of July Parade!
