  • A portion of this rehearsal will be outdoors so please bring your white canvas tennis shoes with you.

Theme/Costumes

  • Candy Land
  • Costumes should consist of bright colors (Candy-like).  Feel free to incorporate candy-themed ideas into your costume pieces…i.e., big bows, tutus, shiny or sparkly pieces, special necklaces or accessories, etc.
  • White, Low-Top Canvas Tennis Shoes  (like Keds)
  • Socks must be no-show or footies in solid white (no patterns)
  • Hair up in either ponytail or ponytails….the bigger the better for parade (feel free to curl or rat that pony and make it huge
  • Bright, full make-up please!

 

Washougal Lighted Holiday Parade

  • December 5, 2019 (Thursday)
  •  Line up @ 5:45pm
  • 6:00pm Parade Begins

Costume

  • Each dancer must be lit in order to participate. (Lighted necklaces, headbands, tutus, etc….obviously battery operated w/ small battery packs if you must use battery packs).  Please no glow stick necklaces.  They don’t stay on very well and they leave little rubber pieces lying around in the streets. 
  • Our color palette is white, off-white, light pastels (Snow bunny look). Please do not wear hot pink, flashy bright colors, black etc.   This is helpful so that we can see all the lights and our dancers have a “glow” effect.
  • Hats, scarves, gloves, are all acceptable and also (weather dependent) can make or break a dancer’s experience and comfortability.  
  • Shoes should be black tennis shoes.  (Please no dirty, worn-out shoes.  Remember that this is also a performance and we would like to maintain that a performance that is entertaining as well as pleasing on all accounts). 
  • Hair and Make-up is up to the dancers, but should not be a deterrence from their performance.  Make-up does not need to be full stage make-up.
