Will you have music? *
Remember that the parade is a family event so make your musical selections with families in mind so that you can keep your music playing during the parade!
Float Length (in feet) *
Include the trailer and/or tow vehicle in the float length. (Remember height of each entry is restricted to 13 feet.) The length that you give determines how much space you are given in the lineup. Only vehicles that have submitted a parade application will be allowed to enter the staging area.
Entry Details that you haven't provided already.
If you have any additional information that we will need for staging, please feel free to provide it here.  If you have another parade application that you would like to be staged near or if you are a part of a car club, please share that information for the parade organizers here.

This information may be edited.  If no information is provided, information may be pulled from other resources for the Parade Announcers or your float might not be announced. If you will have to update some information, please save the edit link after you hit submit. All edits need to be completed by November 1, 2022.
