- If you cannot make the 4:00 pm line up for judging – please arrive at 4:30 so Heather & team

at the stage.

- Parade route will be from Cowlitz and follow through town past the stage and post office. Disband turning left onto 3rd Street.
- First and foremost is ensuring safety of the children watching the parade. Please no throwing of candy from floats. Please assign volunteers to walk along side your float entry and hand out the candy to the children in the crowd. This ensures that the children are not running towards the parade into the street to get candy.
- Remember there is only one official Santa & Mrs Claus in the parade and Festival. We ask that you do not have a Santa or Mrs Claus on your float. We do not want to confuse the children. Thank you!
- All animal entries must provide a clean up crew.
