We have prize money, trophies and/or ribbons for three categories of floats and the Color Guards. The categories are:

Category 2:  BUSINESS 

Our THEME for 2018 is “Jeder Liebt Eine Parade” (Everyone Loves a Parade) Decorating to this theme in the float categories will add points to your score!

Prizes are awarded for first, second and third place as well as three special awards, Dieter Hagen Theme award, Don Felton youth award and the Ron Dunham Best of Parade award.

Please take a moment to look over the rule and information sheet. We hope to see you in September!
