I will be traveling with a family member with very limited capacity to walk due to Polio. We had bought grandstand seats at (area one) 450 West Colorado area and parking at the 400 area.
To add to that challenge I will also have a 4 year old toddler with me.
My questions would be:
1. is the area north of I-210 a safe area (i.e. can you walk home from the parade) particularly Garfias drive. If my handicapped family member decides to go home early, we (the able-bodied members of the pack) may decide to stay longer and decide to walk home.
2. I am planning on renting a motorized wheelchair. How early should we be there? I have read that it gets packed and impossible to move around even before the parade starts.
3. Would a post parade viewing of the floats be worth it for my handicapped family member?
Any tips to make this trip enjoyable for my family would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all.
