Floats are the heart and soul of the parade! Every year they are great and every year they get better. We hope you consider working with your neighbors, schools,  alumni group or local organization to build one. We’ll even help you out a little in covering some expenses and hosting a Float Builder’s Information Session to get you going.

We offer reimbursement for up to $500 for neighborhood floats and up to $150 for service organization floats.
