No firearms, fireworks, or alcohol allowed by participants in the parade.
Vehicular participants in the parade must maintain control of their automobile, float, ATV/UTV, tractor, or motorcycle at all times. Inattentive or reckless driving is prohibited (no spinning of tires or burnouts) – no exceptions (it’s the law). Keep at least 50 feet between each participating unit. All local, state and federal driving laws must be observed and will be enforced.
Vehicular participants must possess valid driver’s license and current liability insurance. Drivers of any type of participating vehicle (including ATV/UTV) must be at least 18 years of age.
Children participating in the parade must be accompanied by parents or approved organizational sponsors with legal authority and must be pre-approved by parade officials.
Throwing candy is allowed, however, to ensure the safety of bystanders, if you choose to throw candy be sure it does not hit bystanders and it makes it to the edge of the road. We do not want children entering the roadway to retrieve candy and become endangered.
Horses must be ridden and controlled by their rider/owner at all times. No horse rides may be given. Due to horse droppings, all horses will be last in the parade.
All parade participants individually liable for their participation, actions, and consequences. Appropriate liability insurance is recommended for all parade participants.
