City Advice for Spectators Marking Spots to Watch 2016 Buccaneer Days Illuminated Night Parade

Excitement is building for the 2016 Buccaneer Days Illuminated Night Parade, Saturday, April 30, 2016, 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The big celebration is still a little less than a month away and already dedicated parade watchers are beginning to mark viewing areas along the route.

The City of Corpus Christi would like to remind residents:

  • Spectators are not allowed to use spray paint when marking their spots.

  • Residents should use chalk or a non-permanent marker.

  • If people mark spots with tape, the City asks the material be pulled up and placed in trash bags before the parade begins.

  • Marked parade spots are not guaranteed.

The City asks everyone to please follow these easy recommendations and also reminds residents camping is not allowed along the route until 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the parade.
