The Tuscarawas County Board of Developmental Disabilities will host a drive-thru parade in celebration of Developmental Disabilities Awareness month from noon to 2 p.m. March 23 at the TBDD campus, 610 Commercial Ave. SW, New Philadelphia.

The event will be free of charge to drive-thru guests and participants. Participants are asked to bring giveaway items in addition to any promotional materials from an agency or group.

Each group of participants should dress in bright colors and/or a theme.

A table and chair can be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

TuscBDD serves a portion of people that are medically vulnerable. All COVID-19 protocols will be followed.
