Floats are the heart and soul of the parade! Every year they are great and every year they get better. We hope you consider working with your neighbors, schools, alumni group or local organization to build one.
We’ll even help you out a little in covering some expenses and hosting a Float Builder’s Information Session to get you going. Learn:
- How to organize your neighborhood/group
- Materials to use
- Contacts for materials, towing, safety, special effects, etc.
- Advice from past float builders
We offer reimbursement for up to $1000 for neighborhood floats and up to $500 for service organization floats.
You can chose to have your float participate in our judging contest. Work hard and win recognition. Awards for floats will be presented during Party in the Park for the following categories:
- Overall Best of Parade
