Reserve a Spot for your Float in the Lake Wylie Winter Parade

Lake Wylie Pirates(October 23, 2015)  For over twenty years, Lake Wylie Elementary School has hosted a Winter Parade. The goal of the Winter Parade is to celebrate the season with the school's community partners and to showcase the dedicated staff and talented students in the southwest feeder pattern. The theme for this year's Winter Parade is "Board Games and Apps." Each class, school, or organization interprets the theme by dressing in costume and decorating a float.

The Winter Parade is led by a Grand Marshall. This year, the Grand Marshall will be Superintendent of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Ann Clark. The Olympic High School Marching Band and Cheerleaders are always crowd pleasers!

Board Games This year, the Winter Parade will be on Saturday, December 12th. The Parade will begin promptly at 11:00 am. The parade begins at Lake Wylie Elementary School, winds through The Crossings neighborhood along Moss Road, and ends at Good Shepherd Church.

Lake Wylie Elementary School is inviting other schools, businesses, and organizations to participate in the 2015 Winter Parade. While participation is free, registration is required by November 23.

Floats can be created using a truck, trailer, or even a boat! Students must be accompanied by adults on the float or walking next to the float. Businesses are welcome to advertise in the parade. Parade participants will be allowed to toss out candy to spectators. Some local media participation is expected. All parade participants should park their cars at The Rock Worship Center at 13725 Erwin Road and walk to Lake Wylie Elementary. Participants should arrive at their floats by 10:30 am. Float Decorating will begin at 10 am. Spectators sit along the sidewalk on Moss Road to cheer for our excited students and staff. School principals are invited to ride along in the parade!
