WHAT WE EXPECT OF YOU AS A RIDER

  1. Our beads are pre-loaded on parade vehicles. You may bring addition beads for throwing. We offer a select service where you may purchase additional beads if you require.
  2. Pay for every ride you are on, unless it is denoted otherwise.
  3. Dress for the parade. Be prepared for Galveston’s weather.
  4. Water, drinks and other refreshments are welcome. Feel free to bring you own coolers and food, as you desire. We do allow refreshing adult beverages. We do not require them.
  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.
