To walk in the parade you must complete a Parade Application and be assigned a unit number.
Parade applications help pay for the parade as well as give to the local charities.
Last year alone it cost approximately $8000 to pay for
police, parking meter coverage, and clean up.
It is only with your help that we can keep this parade tradition alive.
