2023 Flag Day Parade

RESCHEDULED - July 6, 2023

BHBL Girls Softball Rec and Travel will be in the 2023 BHBL Community Flag Day Parade. 

We are in Division Three of the BHBL Community Flag Day Parade and our group should meet at the BH-BL High School at 6:00pm. The parade will step off at 7PM.


We encourage car pooling as there are a large number of cars trying to drop kids off at the High School all at the same time.  Also, please enter the High School from Lakehill Road and exit at Kingsley.  This makes the traffic flow a bit better.

A few parade reminders:

The parade must keep moving forward at all times. Your goal should be to move slowly & continuously forward at a speed that allows only 20 – 30 feet between your group and the group in front of you. No huge gaps between parade entries please!


You are welcome to hand out candy or other trinkets to the crowd along the parade route but we do mean to HAND it out. There can be no throwing of candy from floats or vehicles because children darting into the roadway to catch thrown items is a serious safety risk every year. If you plan to hand out candy, be sure to come with marchers who can walk along each side of your vehicle and hand it out.

Marchers walking back along the parade route while the parade is still underway are a problem because they block the view of spectators. Please help us prevent this by reminding your group that, at the parade’s end, school buses will be leaving TCAR (across from Country Acres) every 10 - 15 minutes during the event specifically to shuttle marchers of all ages back to the high school area via Kingsbury /Kingsley Road.


Thanks, again, for being part of this annual BH-BL tradition.  See you Thursday!
