Okay, it’s roughly 1:00 p.m. and the 1st police car is about
to come up the street, you need to close off traffic from the side streets leading into the parade route. This is pretty easy. Ask people sitting around to move their chairs
into the intersection to block. Bring yourself a chair too!!
Please encourage people around your corner to sing the National Anthem at 1:00 p.m.
Parade entries are NOT allowed to “throw or toss” items from the parade.
They may “hand deliver” items. If you
have “throwers”, blow your whistle at them & shake your “no-no” finger.
Mind the Gap! Not only is it boring to what a gap, the crowd
starts to leave if they think that the parade is over, and gaps make people think the parade is over.
The parade ends when the 2nd police cruiser passes by you. Just toot your whistle at the guilty party that's holding the parade up toooooo long, and use that finger to point
toward moving forward.
Stop water situations. i.e., no throwing of water balloons or using super soakers or other stupid water
tricks. Just blow your whistle at them, shake your “no-no” finger.
Assist with crowd control. Such as keeping the street
clear for the parade to pass. Use that whistle, and with your arms make
a motion to move back. You, of course, can be in the street since you are
Street InSECURITY. Be gentle, but firm. Remind them it’s for their own safety. It is very important
to keep the street clear.
Clean-up on Aisle 4! We’ll have boxes set out. If you see trash around your area, ask people to help you pick up everything before
they leave. Just open your trash bag and ask folks to drop in their trash…they
you have spot a litterer, blow your whistle at them & shake your “no-no” finger.
Leave trash bags on your corner when done (we'll pick them up later). After your corner looks tidy, feel free to follow behind the parade and come on down to the Parade Block Party at Buttles & High for some more fun!!!!
Your InSECURITY shirt will let people know that you’re there to help them to have fun and to keep
them safe. Should you have a rare situation & need Police assistance,
seek out one of our Columbus Police Officers on the parade route and let them handle the situation.
Sever medical emergencies call 9-1-1. Oh, if an emergency vehicle does try to come through with
lights on, help move the parade to the side.
Careful of the Cubans! This is a group who will take
a siesta during the parade, be careful telling these Cubans what to do because you could be abducted to Cuba and never to be
Thank you!! Doo Dah is forever grateful for your passion
