1:30PM – Tintamarre

It will follow the original course from CABMF to the Footbridge. Due to the number of people who want to participate but find the walk too long, we are going to ask for volunteers to take these participants in vehicles that will lead the noisy march. Horns will beep and flags can be waved from vehicle windows. Bob and Mary (Delorey) Weber have volunteered to lead the caravan with their truck and a music system. There will be some noise-makers and flags available, but we ask you to bring your own in case we do not have enough. Bailee Williams has volunteered to do aerial photos with her drone during this and other events.

Let’s make this one the biggest and noisiest yet!
