PARADE ENTRY RESPONSIBILITIES
Each entry will be responsible for its own vehicle, decoration, lights (night parade) driver, and signage. All entries should have some form of Christmas decorations. All entries, including marchers, should be lit for evening viewing. Just when you think you have enough lights…. ADD MORE! Be creative and use any lighted Christmas holiday decorations, string lights, battery operated lights, etc. The most common power source is called an inverter found at most hardware stores and your local Wal-Mart. All entries are encouraged to have music. The selections must be Christmas related and appropriate for YOUNG CHILDREN! Make this year’s parade FUN! (No entry may include a live Santa. The “Real Santa” will arrive in high style at the end of the parade.)
