Our ad in the Rainbow Times:

The parade route is a little more than 4 miles; last year it took about 1 ½ or 2 hours to march.  There will be a Duck Boat and trolley available for those unable to walk the distance of the parade.  We will assemble on “D” Street and West Broadway (look for white “Veterans For Peace” flags).
