The parade begins at 8 p.m. tonight and repeats at 6 p.m. tomorrow. You can purchase grandstand seating at the start of the route (at 14th and Bannock streets; $17 for ages thirteen and up, $13 for ages two to twelve), but there are good viewing spots all along the way, and theyre free. "We frequently hear that people like standing by the light-rail lines where they cross over 17th Street," Neumann confides. "The balloons have to do the limbo underneath, and when they pop up on the other side, people always cheer."
