Florida Studio Theater, LWV SRQ, and other organizations will observe the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage by participating in the Sarasota Holiday Parade. LWV SRQ members are invited to walk while wearing white. VP Kitty Galica is our coordinator for the event. To join us, RSVP by Dec. 4th to The first 25 members who RSVP will receive a free suffragette sash.

The Sarasota Downtown Holiday Parade route traditionally runs west along Main Street from Washington Boulevard and then heads out to Gulfstream Avenue. We’ll gather around 5:00 pm east of Main Street. We’ll email you exactly when and where and confirm your reservation soon as FST finalizes planning.

The streets on the parade route are blocked off a couple of hours in advance. Last year, participants were encouraged to park at the State Street or Palm Avenue garages for a nominal fee.
