International Children’s Friendship Festival (ICFF) invites two children from your ethnic community to walk with ICFF in the 2019 Alaska Airlines Torchlight Parade. Ethnic Heritage Council is a partner with ICFF.
ICFF’s Guidelines for Participation in the Parade
- From each community, we would like one boy and one girl who are around 10-15 years old.
- Each child should be able to commit roughly 4-5 hours on the day of the event. This is because we need to arrive at 6:30, 1 hour before the parade begins, then walk roughly 2.5 miles in the parade. This is why we need slightly older children. Parents are welcome to walk with the children.
- The children should be wearing their ethnic costumes and carrying their country’s flags. ICFF will provide flags.
- We’ll also be providing an ICFF banner and a “Peace at Home, Peace in the World” banner for the children to carry.
