July 4th Parade Details

FAST Families

We are fast approaching the annual Fort Collins 4th of July parade. We would love to see as many of you there as possible to make a FAST statement.


Drop Off: 9:15am at the intersection of Howes and Mountain Ave. Dana and the Coaching staff will be there to check swimmers in and direct them to our float. 

Parade: Will head west on Mountain Ave. (approx. 1.5 miles in length and take about an hour to complete). 

Pick Up: Parents will need to pick up their swimmers and sign them out with Dana or the Coaching Staff at the de staging area which is on Jackson Ave in City Park. Look along Jackson Ave at City Park for the FAST float. Please come to the float to pick up your swimmers. Swimmers will not be released without parent sign out, unless requested at drop off. Parade De-Staging will be around 11:00a

What to bring/wear: Please have swimmers wear their blue FAST shirts. Have them bring water and apply sunscreen--may be hot and we will be in the sun for a good chunk of the parade.

Parents may walk along with the float if they would like. 11 and under will ride on the float. 12 and up can walk behind the float or sit on the float.
