2014 MARDI GRAS PARADE PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES

1) While it is Mardi Gras themed, proper decorum and taste will be enforced. Public nudity is not allowed. 2) Floats are restricted to one vehicle, or one vehicle pulling one trailer, unless otherwise approved by the parade committee. 3) Please take safety precautions for your float riders and walkers. Riders should be either secured or positioned so they cannot fall from floats. Walkers should be kept at a safe distance from moving vehicles and have good visibility in any costumes. An adult must supervise youth participants. Animals must be leashed and accompanied at all time by a responsible individual. 4) Care must be taken when throwing or tossing items into the crowd. This includes beads, promotional materials, candy, etc. 5) Unsafe floats and/or participants or those deemed unacceptable by the parade committee will be asked to leave. 6) Because this is a family-friendly event, floats and/or participants deemed overtly controversial in nature will not be allowed to participate. 7) Please arrive to the parade in costume and ready to march. There will be no official changing area available.
