Parade Day Information

  • Parade starts at 7:00 p.m.
  • Check-in begins at 4:00 p.m. Parade Headquarters will be set up at the corner of Third and Jefferson St. (US 421) ½ block north of Main Street in the First Financial Bank (old MainSource) parking lot.
  • All units must be checked in and lined up by 6:00 p.m. Check-in is important as last-minute instructions may be given and parade officials need to know that each unit has arrived.
  • Your unit number can be found on the street- The card you receive in the mail or by email will tell you where you are to line up.
  • The parade starter will be positioned at the corner of Main and Jefferson Streets, where units will be fed into the parade lineup.
  • The lineup will NOT be changed to get a unit closer to the front. Please keep in mind that everyone wants to be in the front, but the end is just as important.

Rules & Regulations:

  • All drivers must have a valid driver’s license to operate a vehicle driven float.
  • Units may contain no element higher than 15 feet to provide clearance of overhead wires and lights.
  • No firecrackers or discharge of firearms will be allowed.
  • No candy and pamphlets can be thrown from a vehicle or distributed.
  • Animals walking in the parade must have a human with them who will promptly clean up ALL waste. 
  • The parade marshals will control the conduct and traffic flow of the parade. Participants must obey the directions of the marshals as they relate to the parade.
  • Individuals and organizations in the parade are expected to always behave courteously and with safety in mind during the formation, execution, and dismissal of the parade. Failure to do so will cause the offending individual or unit to be removed from the parade.
  • The parade ends at Cragmont Street. Please DO NOT stop at the intersection to let people out of cars or off floats at the intersection. This backs parade traffic up behind you.  Pull into the nearest parking lot away from parade traffic.
