Want to walk in the parade?

Guam - If you're looking to march in or enter your village float into the 69th Liberation Day Parade, it's not late. Dededo mayor Melissa Savares says the MCOG has extended the deadline to register until Wednesday, July 10.

"Everyone procrastinates so I understand that's what they're waiting for - to see what their design is going to be before they actually submit their applications. But what we're asking is go ahead and turn in your applications. The design, your description of your float can actually come in by the end of week next week by the 12th," she said.

Savares says only 30 groups have registered to date. She encourages businesses, non-profit groups, and other community groups to march. She adds sequestration may affect military turnout and this year's parade will also miss the close to 600 National Guard members currently deployed to Afghanistan as part of the i-294th Infantry Regiment.

Parade rules and regulations and registration and liability waiver forms can be downloaded at http://www.mcog.guam.gov or pick up a copy at the Mayors Council of Guam located in Hagatna at the J&G Commercial Complex. For more information, call the MCOG office at 472-6490.
