We invite you to be a part of this event by entering a creative, outrageous, and of course green themed float! You may enter as an individual, group, business or organization. Enter a float, a group of Irishmen, pets dressed in holiday attire, musical groups, or any creative entry you can imagine! We encourage all entries to use lots of green (decorations, outfits, etc) as it is in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! You may hand out candy or small items along the parade route, but please do not throw items. There is no fee to participate in the parade.
There will be a prize for most creative entry!
