Entry Fee: $50 if paid by November 15th and $60 by November 27th.
Line Up: Entries may start checking in at 4p.m. The check-in point will be under the Benton St. bridge on 1st Avenue, four blocks south of Center. Entries will be lined up along 1st Avenue starting at the East Lewis intersection. Volunteers will again be coordinating the lineup and parade start.
Judging: Judging will take place from 5:30-6:00 p.m. To be considered, your entry should be assembled and running when the judges see it. Please understand that it takes time to judge all the entries.
Parade Start: The parade will start moving at 6:30 p.m. Entries will go in the order that they arrived in the lineup with the possible exception of trophy winners.
Parade Route: Please refer to the map. Note that your entry will need to go through the Center Street underpass, which has a 12’ 2" clearance. There is also a tight left turn in front of the island on the west side of the underpass. Please make sure your entry can manage this and other turns along the route.
Parade End: The parade will end at W. Wyeth and N. Main St. Please do not unload floats in the street. You will be directed either down N. Main or down N. Harrison and asked to pull to the side of the street to unload. Please be courteous as all floats need to complete the parade route. Thank you!
