Floats are the heart and soul of the parade! Every year they are great and every year they get better. We have a lot of floats now, but there is always room for more. We’ll even help you out a little with help in covering some expenses and hosting a workshop to get you going.

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