It's time to register for the 57th Porsche Parade to be held in Salt Lake City, July 8-14, 2012
Fellow Porsche Club of America Members,
It's time to register for the 57th Porsche Parade to be held in Salt Lake City, Sunday, July 8, through Saturday, July 14, 2012. You need to be there!
We have new software you will use to register for Parade, which we will be able to enhance over time. The new system has same format as the old software, so you will need to go page by page through all of the activities (warning, there are a lot of things to do!), clicking yes or no for each one, before you can check out. New this year is a calendar which will tell you what you have signed up for each day, warning you of any conflicts.
There are people and car limits on some of the cooking schools and tours, but not the competitive events. Everyone registering March 27-29, however, has the same opportunity to get into any activity with limits. If we sell out of an event in those first three days, we will contact people to see how flexible they are to switching days before picking names out of a hat. We have plenty of hotel rooms! The Little and Grand America Hotels in the heart of Salt Lake City will be our host hotels this year. Our primary block of rooms is in Little America, a AAA Four Diamond, family founded facility that has been a Salt Lake City landmark for over 40 years. Its sister hotel, the Grand America, is a Five Diamond facility. The hotels are across the street from each other are conveniently located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, nightlife, cultural and sporting activities and the downtown trolley system. You will receive an email with the hotel discount codes after completing your registration.
If you are not able to register online, please call the Parade Registrar, Kathleen Behrens, at 503.579.3423 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. To see all the activities and plan your week, click here. Video here.
