In the past we've had some from about 2 (in a stroller) to about 70. We'll have a Libertarian banner on a pole (about 10 feet across) and an American Flag. If you have any other flags (Liberty Flag, Don't Step On Me Flag, etc.) bring them. The more the merrier. The parade will form up at the Logan Village Shopping Center Parking Lot at 3400 Dundalk Ave. at 7:30 AM. We probably won't step off until 8:30 or 9:00 but traffic getting TO the parking lot is a real bear so give yourself some time.
