Your representative must report at the check-in point for entry verification no earlier than 6:00 PM. You must register to be in the line-up and pre-pay online.

We encourage groups to showcase their organizations by entering a float or organizing a group of walkers. This parade gives you an opportunity to promote yourselves in front of our community. All cars and vehicles must be registered as floats. A vehicle pulling a float is counted as one float.
