It’s a Parade!!
NHS will be participating in the Manassas Christmas Parade on December 6, 2014 at 10AM. The theme of the parade is “A Christmas Fantasy”. NHS will be dressing in the colors of Christmas bulbs. Pick a color and go crazy!!! We all arrive/park between 8-9 am at the Manassas Shopping Center located at Manassas 4 Cinemas, 8890 Mathis Ave, Manassas, VA 20110. This prevents you from getting stuck in traffic and allows us time to decorate ourselves and our horses.
To add to the fun, the Prince William County Mounted Police unit are joining us by adding two of their officers/horses to our group! We also have two of our members (Frank Boberek-your 2015 incoming Club President and Buddy Baldwin) dressing in their Civil War reenactment garb – one riding for the North and the other for the South! AND, we may even have Jim Barnes, MNBP-Head of the Volunteer Mounted Patrol Program joining us if he can confirm Park coverage for the day.
Due to insurance requirements, you must be an NHS member to participate. If you join for the parade, NHS will allow your membership to begin immediately and run all the way through 2015. Please click the Join NHS tab to download and print the application. You will also need to provide a current Coggins to Rose Murphy-Director of Operations/Business Manager at email@example.com or Marian Cloud-Parade Director at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11/24.
NHS is also participating in the Nokesville Christmas Parade on December 13th at 4 pm. If you are riding in the Manassas Day Parade, you can use the same horse/human decorations for this parade. We will be parking at Brentsville District High School Located at 12109 Aden Road, Nokesville VA 20181. Please be at the parking area no later than 3PM. We need to be ready to Ride at 4PM.
