Parade Marchers Gather
(We are returning to the “old” parade route from a couple years ago - the same route used in 2014 and before.)
Marchers are lining up in the Melody Parking Lot above the former Mellon Arena site off of Centre Avenue and Mario Lemieux Place. In between Crawford Ave and Fullerton St.
Our contingent is #179 in the White Division again, which is at the end of the parade this year. Each division lines up alphabetically, so we will be a few after the PSEA and before the SEIU. Look for our banner and a group wearing black SAG-AFTRA t-shirts.
Coffee and pastries will be provided. Also, members get a free SAG-AFTRA t-shirt! (Limited number available on a first-come, first-served basis.)
Group photo with our banner will be taken before the parade begins.
Please note road closures near the parade route will begin around 7:30 a.m. (including Centre and Liberty Ave). You do not need be at the line up location this early, but be aware in regards to navigating your way to the line up location.

The renovations also mean the building’s front door and lobby are closed; please enter from the sixth floor of the garage next to the office building. The elevator entrance to the office is located above and across from the garage elevators on the sixth floor. (We will have plenty of signs to point you in the right direction.) The door will be locked – enter keypad code #625555. Take those elevators to the 20th floor, suite 2007.
