  1. I attended the 40th Sun City West parade. Wow! I am glad I did. I thought it was a nice turn out. It had a grest variety of things to see. Glad the rain quit beforehand. Loved the classic cars, never knew how many worked volunteerily with The Prides…they do an awesome job beautifying our streets. Thank you everyone. The bands, the bagpipes, all the ladies’ sports groups, (never knew pickleball was played with a racket) the costumes,missed the airplanes unfortunately.Everyone was so friendly despite how cool the weather was. Loved everything…too much to mention. Very impressed. That was the longest parade I have ever gone to. Can’t imagine organizing this event. Kudos to those involved in that process. Again can’t say enough good stuff about the parade.

  2. what about emergencies? How does a trapped resident leave?

    • Multimedia says:

      Hello Sharon, in case of emergency a resident should call 911 as they normally would. There will be a large number of police and fire personnel at the parade, so not to worry, they will be close by.

  3. I don’t see anything on where to park if you want to sit and watch along the Parade route. Right now it looks like I would have to get on a side street before light, at 6:30am.

    • Multimedia says:

      Hello Ken. While the actual parade route and streets directly surrounding it will be closed early, you should be able to access side streets closer to the route for parking by coming in from ‘other’ directions, such as from Stardust, etc.

  4. Cary Chmielewski says:

    I trust the Sheriff/Posse assigned to Pyracantha & Meeker and Spring Meadow & Meeker will briefed to allow ‘trapped’ residents to get out/in during the closure time when the parade is not active on Meeker? For example between 6:30 AM and say 8:45 AM. Also to consider a situation where a resident, perhaps unaware of the parade schedule, is wanting to get out during the parade (ie. doctor appt).

    • Multimedia says:

      Hello Cary. Flyers were hand delivered to all the homes affected by the closures, indicating that people should plan ahead. We have outlined the parade route and feel that sufficient notice has been given to all so that people can plan ahead. The closures are important for the safety of all involved, so we’ve taken these steps to make sure everyone is informed.

    I do not understand how parade participants get out of the area at the end of the parade when all of the following streets are closed.

    Beardsley & 126th Ave.

    Beardsley & 124th Ave.
