A parade/marching contingent is an organized group of 50 people or less representing a registered organization. All contingents must file a parade application. The NPRDP will provide permits and access wristbands upon completion of the registration process. No contingent will be permitted to march without the applicable permits and wristbands.
All organizations must file parade applications, separately. Parade formation permits cannot be shared.
No. For security purposes, required by the NYPD, we must have the ability to identify all marchers and their respective contingents.
