The Colorado Springs Veterans Day Parade appreciates the enthusiasm and interest in our event shown by local Scouting groups. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm has truly overwhelmed the parade. We are limited by the City of Colorado Springs to only 1 ½ hours for the parade. Having so much Scout participation in the past has caused us to come dangerously close to our time limit. Therefore, Scout groups are not allowed to register to participate in the parade. We understand this is a disappointment for many Scouts. They are still able to participate if they partner with a military or veteran group to march in the parade. REGISTRATION MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE MILITARY OR VETERAN GROUP and must include the Scout leader’s name and contact information.

Scouting groups are asked to keep their number of scouts per pack as close to 10 as possible.  This regulation has been established for the safety of the children, as well as the rest of the parade participants.  We also recommend that scouts traveling on foot are over the age of 9 years old.  Scout banners are acceptable, however, scout floats are not.  We encourage the scouts to be incorporated witht he display of the military or veterans group they are traveling with.
