We invite everyone to participate and walk with us during the event. Our goal is to increase last years participation and have the best turn out to date. If you are planning on joining us, please arrive at the stadium at 5:30 PM to line up. Please wear a purple Powell shirt (if available). There will be props available, but if you have feather boas, masks, or other masquerade party accessories, feel free to wear them.
