Entry Information

Have fun with your entry. Make it bright and colorful with lots of lights and even music. This is an evening parade and anything with lights will show off well! Candy throwing is NOT ALLOWED. We will only have police escort through town, the road will NOT be closed for this parade, so for the safety of our community, we will not allow candy to be thrown on the parade route. Candy can be distributed once all of the entries get to Spencer Park.
