Opening Day ParadeAugust 17th, 2024 7:30 AM START!

The first Pleasanton Youth Soccer Parade took place in 1969 and we are very excited to continue this tradition for its 54th 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.
