To partake in the Jeep Parade to the dunes all vehicles must be street legal. If your Jeep is trailered you will need to obtain a parking lot voucher. You can then join everyone when we make it onto the dunes at the rallying point!

The voucher distribution point on Hazel Road will open at 8 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. Parking Lot Vouchers will be handed out Friday starting at 8 a.m. for Saturday and Saturday at 8 a.m. for Sunday.
