2018 Holiday Parade Volunteers
(scroll to bottom of page for application)
The Ocean Beach Town Council (OBTC) is seeking the help of 100 responsible persons who would like to volunteer and help ensure that the 39th Annual Ocean Beach Holiday Parade is a successful and wonderful event for our community. The Holiday Parade occurs on Saturday, December 1, 2018, and it cannot occur without the dedicated support of our volunteers.
- The Parade starts at 5:05 pm (OB Time). All participating volunteers will need to report in to the Ocean Beach Recreation Center, 4726 Santa Monica Ave, Ocean Beach, at 2:00pm sharp on Saturday, December 1st and check in with the OBTC Volunteer Coordinators.
- Each volunteer will be given an official 2018 Ocean Beach Holiday T-Shirt.
- If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need to receive your Volunteer Application by November 30th so we can order your official 2018 Ocean Beach Holiday T-Shirt.
Here are descriptions of our parade volunteer positions:
– Block Captains: Block Captains are in charge of staging parade entrants in their correct order. The Captains walk with their parade section in the Parade. (6 needed)
– Staging Assistants: Staging Assistants help the Block Captains with staging parade entrants. The Staging Assistants walk with their parade section in the Parade. (24 needed)
– Security/Crowd Control Volunteers: Security/Crowd Control Volunteers assist with ensuring the event is peaceful and reporting any incidents to our hired team of security professionals. This team volunteers from 4:00-7:00pm. (9 are needed)
– Traffic Barricade Guards: Traffic Barricade Guards are stationed in pairs at various traffic barricades before the parade starts to ensure that vehicles do not enter the parade staging route until SDPD Traffic Control units arrive at approximately 4:30pm (16 are needed)
– Clean Up Crewmembers: Clean Up Crewmembers provide integral assistance after the parade to pick up debris and recycling and ensure that our streets and community are clean (this is an ideal position for an environmentalist).
