Burbank on Parade President Carey Briggs has announced that “Let's Go to the Movies” is the theme for the parade on April 6.
The parade committee has launched a major drive for volunteers and is getting an early start on fundraising, Briggs added.
Coming up on Monday, Caminiti's Pizza & Sports restaurant, 1220 W. Burbank Blvd., will donate a percentage of dine in or take out orders to the parade between 5 and 8 p.m. Customers are asked to download and print the event flier from the parade Facebook page and present it when ordering. The restaurant has pizza, salads, hot grinders and pasta.
The parade committee is organizing a fundraising comedy night at Flappers at 5 p.m. on Dec. 2. Tickets are $20.
Committee members manned booths at two events last weekend and gathered 100 names of prospective volunteers to help put on the parade. On Saturday they were at the Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter's Paws Matter Event at the Burbank Police & Fire Headquarters. Saturday and Sunday they were at the Fall Into the ARTS Festival in Downtown Burbank.
