Changes to the Parade Entry Process:

In the past few years, the Mardi Gras Parade has grown! This growth has prompted us to make a few changes to keep the parade to approximately 1 hour in length. Please review the changes for this year:

  • Parade will be limited to 60 entries.
  • Priority will be given to local entries first. If you are an out of area group looking to participate, please complete the form below and we will place you on a waiting list pending space available once all local entries have been included.
  • We are requiring a parade application. Please include details on how you will be decorating your float/entry. Entries without decoration WILL NOT be accepted.
    1. Parade entries will be reviewed once per week and approved by the Winter Carnival committee.
    2. Qualifying entries will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis until we fill the 60 entry maximum.
    3. Any entries on a waiting list will be notified regarding approval by January 18, 2019.
  • SEALED CANDY ONLY! Due to overwhelming feedback on the amount of waste candy leaves behind, we are asking that you only throw candy that is in a fully sealed wrapper  (no twisted wrappers like smarties and tootsie rolls – please opt for 100% sealed candy like peppermints or bit size Snickers). And as always, beads or small promotional items can be handed out as well!
PARADE APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!
