As the saying goes, everyone loves a parade and the Garden Grove City Council will be asked at its Tuesday meeting to show $5,400 worth of love for the annual West Garden Grove Youth Baseball Opening Day Parade.

The yearly event takes place on streets in the West Grove area and features youth baseball and softball players, and typically also includes members of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education and school officials, members of the city council and the Orange County Fire Authority.

According to Erin Fales, vice president of West Garden Grove Youth Baseball, the organization is requesting that the city enter into a co-sponsorship. The cost to provide police staff and equipment required to close city streets is about $5000, and the rental and staff for the city’s Snowmobile stage is about $400.

The parade is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 25.

Also on the agenda will be a written request from the City of Westminster for the use of the Showmobile for the Tet Parade on Jan. 25 at a cost of $250.

The parade, honoring the lunar new year, will be held on Bolsa Avenue between Magnolia and Bushard streets.

Tuesday’s council meeting will be held in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove.
