WE HAVE A GO FOR THE 2010 Pflugerville Christmas Parade!

Members of the Pack gathered together and decorated a trailer into a float, using lights, foam board, and other Christmas decorations donated or loaned for the occasion.  Tiger Scouts rode on the float, with room for tired scouts, and Akelas, during the 1.5 mile parade route.

       Trailer Decoration       
We need to get together and decorate the float.  If you have any props, lights, decorations, ideas, creative talent, we would love to have you show up and help us decorate our float!   Everything brought can be loaned or donated to the float.  If you loan it to us, please let us know so we can make sure it is return in the same condition and we attach it to the float in a temporary manner.

Date/Time: SATURDAY, 12/10/2010
Time: Anytime after 12pm, until dark.  (Come and go during this time with donations, decorating, etc..)
Location:  300 Stansted Manor Drive, Pflugerville, TX 78660

We can do simple or complex.

Pflugerville Christmas Parade
Saturday, 12/11/2010, 6pm

PACK 409 will be in slots 30 and 31.

It's dark by the time the parade starts, so getting there by 5pm will make it easier for you to find the slots and get organized. If you have vehicles dropping off people or equipment, please have them gone by 5pm, otherwise it's gets too crazy with people trying to line up while other vehicles are pulling in and out all over the place.

Line-up instructions

The parade route is 1.3 miles long, starting at the intersection of Pfennig Lane and Railroad Avenue at Park Crest Middle School (PCMS). It proceeds south on Railroad Avenue to downtown Pflugerville. You will be assigned one or more line-up slots along Pfennig Lane running west of Railroad Ave. Slot 1 is at the start of the parade route. Police/Fire/EMS vehicles will lead the parade followed by a band consisting of members from all three Pflugerville ISD high schools.

NO PARKING will be allowed in the line-up area or along Pfennig Lane, except for vehicles participating in the parade. You may drop off parade participants at the line-up area, but all extra vehicles and support vehicles must be removed from the area by 5pm.

Parking will be available at PCMS, at St Elizabeth Church (behind PCMS), and at Brookhollow Elementary (BES), and in the field across Railroad Ave from BES. (BES is the approximate midpoint of the parade route). If you have a large trailer, park it in the field behind St Elizabeth church (see detailed line-up map). After dropping off your group or equipment, turn left (north) on Railroad Ave and take the first driveway on the left. Beware that it is a very steep turn.

There is a 6pm Mass at St. Elizabeth that uses most of the parking lot. Please be considerate.

Parade Precautions
Floats, trailers, and trucks used for carrying parade participants must operate in a safe manner. If children are riding on any part of the parade vehicle, there must be adult supervision with the children. The adults must be in the same location as the children (e.g. on the trailer or in the truck bed, not just in the cab).

Adult supervision is absolutely required.

  • Do not move any traffic cones in the line-up area or along the parade route.
  • All floats must be lighted.
  • All vehicles must have their parking lights on during the parade.
  • Only people walking alongside the float are allowed to throw candy.
