Parade Entry Important Info:

Parade entries with moving vehicle, or animals that may become anxious by unexpected approach or noises are asked to have spotters (2-4 persons) walk with your entry to ensure safety of your team and spectators.  

There is no throwing of candy allowed - we do not wish to have children running into the darkened street for candy risking their safety.  Candy and information can be distributed by having walkers (2-4) with your entry walking along the sides of the crowd along the street and handing out what you would like distributed.  

Please, no live Santa's or Mrs Claus in the parade - they are our Grand Marshalls and have already been arranged for.  

Thank you so much for your cooperation - We wish everyone the best the season has to offer of health and happiness!
