Does it Cost Anything to be in the Parade?

    Due to increased costs to produce the parade, it now is necessary to charge entries to be in the parade. Business units will pay $100.00. Family groups, individuals and not-for-profit organizations will pay $10. Checks made payable to VisionWorks LLC must accompany the application. Net proceeds from the parade go to Dare to Care.

Can My Kids and I Just Jump In At The End?

    Actually, yes you can.  At the end of the Parade, we encourage people who have arrived in costume to jump in and march along!
    Granted, we'd prefer you register and get a place in the parade line-up so we know you're coming.

What Can I Do In The Parade?

    Almost anything goes, Be Creative! (Check out last year's pictures!)

  • Build a Float!
  • Decorate your Car!
  • Make A Banner and March with it!
  • Group Costumes!
  • Marching Bands!
  • Rollerskates and Unicycles!
  • Stilt walkers!

 

Where's The Best Place To Watch The Parade?

    There are a host of businesses along the Parade Route where you can eat, drink, and watch the parade.
    Additionally, there's a few miles of sidewalks along the route as well!  Anywhere you can find a place to stand or sit.  You may want to bring some lawn chairs.
    And don't forget the review stand area at the end of the Route
on the corner of Baxter and Barret Avenue in front of the Baxter Avenue Morgue!

Can I Play Music On My Float?

    Sure you can!  We ask you to make sure the lyrics are G-rated though.
    The only thing we ask that you not do, is throw stuff to the crowd.  We don't want people rushing into the parade traffic to catch candy, or pick up prizes.  A fun parade is one where nobody gets run over by a float.
