Participants of the 2014 Burbank on Parade will have a variety of options for decorating floats and other entries with the theme “Burbank — The City of the Future”.

The parade committee decided on a theme and the date for the parade –April 26 — when the group met Tuesday evening at the Burbank Museum, said President Carey Briggs.

“This year’s theme incorporates all the great aspects of our community with a view towards the future,” Briggs said. “Our friends in the entertainment industry, small businesses, Burbank Water and Power, Burbank Bob Hope Airport, the schools and service clubs are going to have fun depicting this theme while making this a great day for our community.”

Volunteers are needed to help organize the event, which begins at 11 a.m. and travels east along Olive Avenue from Keystone Street to Lomita. For information on the next meeting, visit www.burbankonparade.com.

Entries featured will be high school and independent marching bands, floats, equestrian units, classic vehicles, celebrities and a grand marshal.
