The Lemke's will again be hosting the Mt. Pleasant Christmas parade prep party at the 450 West Coleman Blvd garage where we decorate the cars prior to driving in the parade. This year our parade route has changed due to the extensive road construction on Coleman Blvd by the Moultrie school. The Mt. Pleasant parade is a night event and all cars in the parade must have Christmas lights on them. There are plenty of ways to accomplish this, battery powered lights, DC-AC inverters, etc. If you have any questions please call me.
The parade is Sunday Dec. 10th. You should be at the garage no later 4:00pm to give yourself time to decorate your car. Unlike most years, Coleman Blvd, from the Ravenel bridge to about Shem Creek will close at 5:00pm. Usually it closes earlier, but again, please do plan on being here around 4:00pm or earlier if you need to put your lights on to make things easier. We need to pull out of the shop around 4:30-4:45pm to get in the line-up on time. We just don't have the luxury of pulling out into our spot just before the parade starts this year like we usually do.
We will pull out of the garage and head up Coleman to Wilden St. then up to King St where we'll turn left and parallel Coleman down to Pherigo St. A left on Pherigo puts us at the start of the parade line up.
The parade ends at the Waterfront park, which will actually be easier for most folks to continue on home rather than the upper end of Coleman.
We will have chili and drinks, bring something, a desert or appetizer if you like. It's always a lot of fun and it's nice to have a spot close to the parade to prepare and hit the bathroom before we leave for the line up. If your family just wants to watch the parade they are welcome to park at the garage and they will be right on Coleman.
I will send out another note before the parade so everyone knows what our entry number is and the final details. Make sure you have my number in your phone! We have needed to interface with the parade folks in the past so you need to be able to call me.
Hope to see you all here, it's a lot of fun, we promise you'll have a good time!
