3. Entrants must follow instructions from police & parade officials or may be subject to immediate expulsion from the parade.
4. Candy and other objects are not to be thrown from floats or by marchers. Items may be personally handed to the crowd. The reason for this: Young children run to retrieve the items & can possibly be run over by the wheels of the trucks pulling the floats.
5. No articles or persons are to be hanging over the sides of the floats or out windows from enclosed vehicles.
6. All entries are by invitation only & must be approved by the parade committee. Entrants may display a wide-variety of designs - in good taste. The advocation, opposition, or depiction of any political, controversial, or indiscreet message is prohibited. Decision of the parade committee is final.
7. Entrants must maintain forward motion. Performing is permitted during long pauses. There is no stopping unless parade marshals direct you. If you are stopped, entertain spectators until you start again. (The crowds love this!)
8. The parade committee’s decision on placement is final.
9. Equestrian units & all entrants with animals must have their own cleanup unit. Riders must be at least 14 years of age.
10. Please, no sirens in the line of march. This is a safety precaution in case of fire or ambulance emergency and it is disruptive to the bands trying to play.
11. No smoking on or near floats.
12. Vehicles (buses, trucks, cars, etc.) will NOT be allowed in the line of march unless absolutely necessary and prior permission must be secured.
