This year’s theme is a celebration of the diverse cultures and people of this community, creatively expressed through music, dance, costumes and art. We encourage you to submit an entry that represents your heritage and culture and/or symbolizes what America means to you.
We are looking for parade entries with high entertainment value, so get creative and put together a colorful display of music, dance, drill or ...build a float! All parade applicants will be reviewed by the parade committee and will be selected based on the following criteria: creativity, entertainment value, enhancement of the parade theme, and incorporation of music.
