ALL RAYS TO MARCH IN MASON
HERITAGE FESTIVAL PARADE SATURDAY MORNING
Two years ago, more than 90 swimmers marched as a team in team shirts, goggles and flippers in the Mason Heritage Festival Parade. To the cheers of spectators, we waved and even did team cheers as we walked. This year we would love for ALL 300+ Manta Rays to march in the parade! Not only will this be a fun team activity, we want to show the City of Mason that we are a large and important part of this community!
WHO: SWIMMERS & COACHES (Parents welcome too!) WEAR BLUE OR GREEN MANTA RAY T-SHIRT & WARM-UPS. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A MANTA RAY SHIRT, PLEASE JUST WEAR A GREEN OR BLUE SHIRT. BRING BUBBLES IF YOU HAVE THEM!

NOTE: Please be aware that the Mason Heritage Parade does not allow us to share our love for water with spectators literally (so, no water balloons or squirt guns). No floats this year as well.
