Does anyone know the date and time of the indoc parade mentioned in an earlier post. Thank you.
I asked the same question here about a week ago.
Here was the sole response from kpskilegac (and thanks for that response kpsilegac!):
"As I recall, the INDOC parade is at the conclusion of INDOC- perhaps Friday afternoon prior to the start of class but someone can jump in and correct me if I'm wrong on the timing.
Yes it is open to the public and if you live nearby and can make the trip it is well worth it. The new PC"s will really surprise you as they march in review.
There is no contact with the "outside world" although you may get a glimpse of your DD or DS as they pass by.
Bring a camera and take lots of pictures. Many parents posted them on the website (Parent's Page) through Shirley Anthony the KP Parent's liaison.
Check the parent's page or check with Shirley and she may be able to give you the exact date and time. It's usually about 4PM.
If you arrive early you may actually catch a glimpse of your PC practicing on the soccer field or Tomb field in their PT gear wearing their black shoes and socks along with their cover. There may still be some pics from last year on the parents page under INDOC photos 2009.
Good Luck and enjoy the ride!"
When my DS went through INDOC for 2012 the parade was broadcast on the web and we were able to watch it here in Michigan.
I don't believe it was posted on the web for 2013. As glued as I was to my laptop, looking for Waldo, I can't believe I missed that.
There was a dear father that took his camera to the parade and with a great lens got hundreds of pictures and then posted them and put the link on SAF. One of his pictures now resides on the refrigerator door. Thank goodness my DS is 6'5"!
