Parade Guidelines

I understand that Santa CANNOT be present on my float or as a walker; Santa will ONLY be on the final float.

I understand all entries should incorporate this year’s theme: ‘Tis the Season to be Thankful. Politically themed floats are NOT allowed.

I understand that if giving out candy I must HAND it to kids, NO THROWING candy allowed. This is a safety precaution to prevent kids from running into the road near moving floats.

I understand I will NOT be refunded the entry fee if the parade is cancelled or I am unable to participate.
