- Parade begins at 10:30am with Kiddie Parade first then Grand Parade immediately after
- Continue walking, dancing, moving after parade – right on Stewart St and right on 1st to Parade pickup area. This allows the parade to keep moving with no holdups.
- Parade is expected to end between 11:00am-11:30am.
Parade Exit Planning Required
- Please let us know if you need special parade exit planning!
- The parade is supposed to continue walking, dancing, and moving by turning right on Stewart Street, up the hill and use side streets to traverse town.
- Only the kiddie parade participants are supposed to turn right on 1st to the Parade pick up area. All other parade participants need to use the side streets to exit the parade, find parking, etc.
- We need to know if you are a larger vehicle that can't make the right turn right up Stewart St. and collaborate on an clear exit path so you don't block the flow of the end of the parade.
General Parade Etiquette
While preparing to walk or perform in the parade, keep the following in mind:
- Floats are encouraged, but might have size restrictions due to the width of the street. (See Parade Banner information below)
- NO CANDY THROWING, you may only hand candy or favors to parade watchers.
- We encourage each parade entrant needs to appoint a "safety manager" to walk with the group and focus on keeping the crowd back and keep kids from running across the street.
- The order of parade participants is determined in advance. If you have special requests contact the parade leadership at least 48 hours in advance!
- Parade entries will be judged this year by a panel of judges on the Main Stage (located at the corner of Main Street and Stella Street).
- All parade entries will stop in front of the Main Stage and Judges.
- You must limit your routine so the parade doesn't get backed up.
- Judges will be judging on the following categories: Animal, Team, Band, Float, People Walking, Vehicle and Best of Parade.
- Winners will be announced at the end of the parade at Main Stage and on Facebook.
- Winners will also be called with the news to coordinate trophy pick up.
Parade banner and helpful street width information.
- The most narrow area along Main Street is the North side of Stella & Main & it’s 16’ wide.
- The median down Main Street is 7.5 feet wide. To be able to span the median a banner will have to be 10 or 12 feet long.
- If you have a banner that is less than 10' it will have to be on one side of the street or the other, once you hit the area of Main Street where the median resides.
- For reference, Duvall Rotary Club uses these size banners when marching = 12' long and 2' wide for the Kiddie and Grand Parade banners.
