Volunteers needed: Parade of Lights

The 9NEWS Parade of Lights, Colorado’s largest holiday parade, is in Downtown Denver on December 1 and 2, 2017. We are currently looking for volunteers to participate as costumed characters, banner elves, and grandstand ambassadors. These volunteers (12-years-old and older) will be assigned to a unit and specific costume and face paint. The volunteers will march the two-mile parade route (under the supervision of a unit captain) in character while waiving at the thousands of locals who come to watch the parade each year.

Persons interested in participating in this year’s parade should go to www.denverparadeoflights.com and fill out an application as soon as possible. Positions are filling up quickly!

Troop 2214 participates in Western Slope Parade of Lights


Troop 2214 had its very first float in the Parade of Lights this year. They did Hansel and Gretl, the gingerbread house in the woods. They wore the Girl Scout cookie costumes to go with the “cookie” house and handed out candy on the parade route and were mentioned by the emcees as they drove past the judges’ booth.

“We had a good time and will do it again, for sure!”
