Participants Registration Information
You are responsible for the safety and liability of your float and the participants.
All floats and towing vehicles must carry valid insurance.
All floats, trucks, trailers, etc. MUST be in the park in their respective parking lots by 12 noon. This is mandatory!

All floats must have a minimum of four walkers (spotters), two on each side of your float. We recommend that your spotters wear high visibility vests.
For safety reasons, nothing may be thrown from the floats or vehicles. Only walkers may hand out candy or items to the spectators. Loose candy on the road temps children to run in front of floats.
