My recommendation....

From the beginning of the parade, get the car moving from a stop using second gear (not first)... Then drive as slowly as second gear will allow without lugging uncomfortably (don't let it start bucking). Keep enough distance in front of you that you can absorb most slowdowns without downshifting to first or clutching in/braking to minimize wear and tear on your left leg.

You'll be fine... By the way... The V8 has more than enough torque in second to launch easily from that gear. Not sure how easy it would go in the V6.
