I will miss the game and my teammates…, but will forever carry my winning attitude through the trials of adult life.”

The first Pleasanton Youth Soccer Parade took place in 1969 and we are very excited to continue this tradition for its 52nd anniversary! The parade has become a fun event for all Pleasanton families to enjoy and we hope you will all join us in this great chance to bond as one community.
6:45am: If you are attending the parade this year, please arrive at St. Mary and Main in downtown Pleasanton to line up and assemble with your team.
Teams will line up by age group, the youngest in the front and the oldest in the back.
RAGE teams will line up on one half of the street, BUSC on the other.
Arrive early as parking can be difficult, and lining the teams up takes some time. Teams MUST be in line by 7:30am to participate.
7:30am: Parade starts at 7:30 am sharp!
Route: South on Main, west on Angela, north on Peters, end at Peters and St. Mary.
Keep our downtown clean
Please do not create costumes that shed – NO feathered boas, beads, or tinsel, all of which require hours of post-parade cleanup by members of our club.
Do not throw candy or trinkets – doing so is a violation of our parade permit.
Clean up trash – Make sure empty donut boxes, cups, etc find a trash can or are packed out. We suggest teams who bring disposable items also bring a trash bag as street trash cans become full VERY fast.
