Parade Tip
Riders Wanted – All Levels
Any rider at any level is encouraged to join in the parades. Our parades are organized into six sections:
Routine – This is the main body of the parade and consists of riders approximately Level 2 and above. It is a simple routine and can be learned on the spot at your first parade.
Giraffes – Riders must be Level 3 and pass the Giraffe test. These unicyclists ride in the routine.
Back – This part of the parade is for those riders approximately Level 7 and above. The number of riders is kept small (2 – 4). Placement in this area is determined by skill level, parade attendance, and seniority.
Front – These riders are not advanced enough to ride in the routine. They ride in front of the routine, behind the parade banner. You can ride holding on to someone’s hand or just push your unicycle if you can’t do the whole parade.
Special –These riders roam the parade route and interact with the crowd. It might be someone riding a large wheeled unicycle, pushing a stuffed animal on a unicycle, or juggling.
Walkers – This is the support crew. They hand out water, give the tall unicycles a supportive hand, help with crowd control, carry the banner, and do other tasks as needed.
