Complete the ONLINE Parade Registration Form. This information will be provided to our parade coordinator and to the on-stage announcer who will announce your entry to the public during the parade.
Didn't submit a form by parade day? No worries. Go directly to the registration/check-in desk during line-up at Second and Main Streets on parade day. However, without receiving your ONLINE Parade Registration Form in advance, we may not be able to get your entry's information to the on-stage announcer.

Line Up & Parade
Floats and entries will line up on either side of Main Street. For parking, all other non-essential vehicles can park next to the railroad tracks or down one of the feeder streets along Main Street. Please do not block fire hydrants or driveways.
Horse groups, brigades, or posses will line up on College Avenue, one block from Main Street at the Senior Center where trailers can be unloaded/staged. At 3:45, horses will join the parade route, falling into a line-up.
Candy throws, beads, etc., that are family-friendly are welcome. You can pass out literature or business/group/organizational paraphernalia as long as it does not impede the flow of the parade.
The parade will travel clockwise around Circle Drive (Lake DeFuniak will be on your left) and will end at the point of origin.
