December 8th, 2018, Winter Wonderland Parade, Woodland, Ca.
Attention Union, Confederates & All
I am Seeking Volunteers to fall in for the
54th Annual Woodland Holiday Parade
December 8th, 2018
Parade start time: 10:00 a.m. (Rain or Shine)
Theme: Winter Wonderland
Please join the NCWA to march in the 54rd Annual Woodland Holiday Parade. In 2014, 2015, 2016,
2017 we won First Place and a few times won Best of Show award. With your support, we can put on a
demonstration that will impress the audience in attendance and the reviewing judges in demonstrating
living history, and perhaps stir up some interest in joining the NCWA and reenacting Civil War History.
This parade is a large community event that welcomes a variety of individuals, themes, and displays,
along with representation from community groups and outside community organizations. It draws over
30,000 spectators who come out and line both sides of Main Street.
Parade line up is as follows: Fife & Drum, followed by Union & Confederate Brigades, then Civilians
in the rear and along the sides, passing out candy canes and NCWA information. When we reach the
reviewing stand/judging zone, we then shall stop in front of the judges, perform a load in nine times
and fire a crisp volley that has toimpress the crowd and the judges! We will then march for about two
blocks to the finish. The complete parade is about seven blocks—maybe a quarter of a mile long.
After the Parade we will have a Brunch/Lunch—all you can eat, catered by Vince’s Mexican
Restaurant, including soft drinks, held at The Blue Note Brewery.
I will post more details on Brunch/Lunch costs and menu with in the next few weeks.
