THEME: Greatest Sport On Dirt
PARADE NUMBER AND LINE-UP POSITION: The parade begins at 200 West and Tabernacle Line-up
numbers begin at that intersection and continue west on Tabernacle and north and south of Tabernacle on 200
West and 300 West, and south of Tabernacle on 400 West. Enter on 400 West, 300 West or 200 West determined
by how high your entry number is. A map showing entry numbers and street location is provided. Line-up
numbers are painted in the street and your entry should be taken directly to the numbered position prior to the
parade. Do not enter on Tabernacle from the east as this street will be very congested. Members of the Lions
Club will be available along the line-up route with the entry number signs to be posted on the entries and with
information about the line-up. Since the line-up is not completed until Thursday afternoon, DO NOT call for
your line-up number until 1:00pm Friday. We will call the Sponsor phone number from your entry form, to give
the line-up number. If you have not received a call by Friday at 1:00pm, call us.
PARADE LINE-UP: All entries must be in place, ready to go, no later that 4:15PM. Failure to comply with the
time constraints will result in the cancellation of the entry. Entry along the parade route will not be allowed. This rule will be strictly enforced.
BANDS AND MARCHING GROUPS: The parking lot on the corner of Tabernacle and 200 West will be
reserved for all bands. Directors: If you choose to warm up your band or group in the shade somewhere, we
suggest that you have someone assigned to monitor the parade starting point to be sure you are at the starting
point at the correct time. We also suggest that you maintain reliable radio contact with that person. Any band or marching group that is not in formation at the time their entry number comes in parade order will be canceled. Do not force us to remove your band or group from the parade. Please follow the rules.
WALKING GROUPS: All members of walking groups in the General Parade must be 6th grade or older.
AMERICAN FLAGS: Correct flag etiquette suggests that only one American flag be used in a parade. The color guard will carry the American flag at the head of the parade.
CHILDREN’S DIVISION: The Children’s Division has two Categories:
- Decorated, Theme Float
- Themed Group Walking (6 or more required).
SAFETY RULES: Throwing candy or any other item during the parade is discouraged. Children can be hurt or
killed if candy or other objects are thrown from your entry. Entries will be removed from the parade for safety violations.
APPLICATIONS: Entry deadline is September 11th, 2014. The judges and announcers will have no information about late entries. Please fill out the entire entry form. A brief script must be included, so the announcers will know how to present your entry. Entries without a sponsor cannot be accepted.
