IMPORTANT: The safety of parade participants and spectators is one of our primary concerns. Parade applicants are expected to obey the rules.

• Please do not throw trinkets before you have entered the parade route at Columbus and S. Atlantic. We do not want to encourage spectators into parade staging areas in search of beads.
• No fireworks, pyrotechnics or silly string allowed on floats or metallic confetti.
• Floats may be pushed or pulled by hand, golf carts, tractors, 4-wheelers, licensed trucks, scooters etc.
• We do require that all cars, trucks, tow units be licensed and covered by vehicle insurance and driven by a licensed driver.

• Please remember that all entries have to be able to make a 90-degree turn at the intersection of Flagler Avenue and Pine Streets. Height restriction of 12 feet for floats. NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
• Understanding that a parade will have a multitude of spectators and that its primary purpose is to entertain, it is important that each participant keep this in mind when deciding on a theme.
• Entries are encouraged to throw beads - the more the better!!! Candy should be handed out for safety reasons.
Rule of thumb: 1 Case (5 gross) of beads for each person throwing.
• Absolutely NO ENTRY will be allowed in the parade that is not decorated and lit in the "Spirit of Mardi Gras".
• The parade theme discourages candidates or publicity of such, social issues or targeted special interest groups. By making an application entry, please understand the parade committee has final decision authority.

• It is recommended that each float have a person following to discourage parade spectators from running or being in the parade route for safety reasons.

Mardi Gras is a blow out celebration marking the beginning of the Lent season. While the traditional Mardi Gras celebration is an absolutely wild festival held in Louisiana, the New Smyrna Beach Mardi Gras celebration is meant to be an all encompassing event for residents and visitors to the area. There will be NSB Police presence to prevent full scale acts of raunchiness.
