Guidance for Anyone Participating in Parades
All participants in parades should:
behave with due regard for the rights, traditions and feeling of others in the vicinity,
refrain from using words or behaviour which could reasonably be perceived as being intentionally sectarian, provocative, threatening, abusive, insulting or lewd,
obey the lawful directions of parade organizers and stewards at all times, from assembly to dispersal,
abide by the conditions of this Code of Conduct,
comply with police directions and in accordance with legislation.
No paramilitary-style clothing is to be worn at any time during a parade.
Whenever possible, the parade should be positioned on one side of the carriageway so as to allow for the free flow of traffic, or as otherwise stipulated by police.
Participants should keep to the designated route as directed by the police.
Alcohol should not be consumed immediately prior to, or during a parade. An organizer or steward, who believes a participant to be under the influence of alcohol, should take the necessary measures to remove that person from the parade.
