Does your group, organization, or business want to build a float, decorate a car, organize a walking entry, or become a sponsor? It’s easy to join, and HUGE fun! REACH OUT TO US for ideas on how to get started if you’d like… we love to help new krewes and businesses join the fun!

EVERYONE IS INVITED TO JOIN US AT THE END OF THE PARADE IN THE WALTON ARTS CENTER PARKING LOT  FOR MORE FUN! Crowning of Royalty, Charity Announcements, Photos, and MORE BEADS!!!!

Before you submit your entry, you’ll want to know about our parade entry guidelines. There are written instructions for all participants, and here they are:

General guidelines for parade entries

Instructions for parade drivers

Instructions for parade walkers

And here are the barricade map and the parade route map.
