IMPORTANT: As of February 2017, the AADP has updated it’s registration process and we are now asking Participants to follow
the registration instructions below. As you may know, over the past forty-seven years the AADP has been operating at absolutely
no-cost to Participants. However, as we seek to enhance the AADP Brand and prepare for local and national broadcasting, we
ask that all Participants support our transformative efforts and register with a modest donation. The AADP is a Parade for the
community and we depend on the support of the community to further our growth as an organization. We thank you for your
continual support!!
