Every year Team 247 volunteers to help out the Berkley Holiday Parade Committee.  We arrive early and help with setting up traffic barricades to insure participants and pedestrians are safe.  We break out in small groups and manage to cover every street the entire parade route along 12 mile road.  We also help out by carrying banners in the parade.  Once the parade passes we go back through and open the roads back up quickly and efficiently to minimize traffic congestion.
