  5. Some parades, especially the more popular ones, will have assigned spaces. Before you drop all your beads in a specific spot, ask the vehicle driver whether or not there are assigned spaces. If there aren’t then feel free to choose a place. If there are assigned spaces, please be respectful. Keep your space clean. Keep your beads in your spot and hang them appropriately.
