Stunts that may INTERFERE or UNDULY hold up the parade are not permitted. Please have your stunts organized to be MOVING FORWARD at all times. You will be judged on this aspect. Thank you
As a way to help the parade flow more evenly, please try to keep about one to two car length (12-24ft) Max in front of your entry making the flow better and viewing of the parade more desirable.
Older walkers are encouraged to take breaks riding on a vehicle to help with the flow. Keep Hydrated.
Any horse entries will be provided a special area to unload and form up and should be ready to enter the parade when your number in the parade comes to that area. A Marshall will be there to direct you. Please email or call Larry Hughes @ email@example.com or call 780-915-2890 as soon as possible if in doubt. (my email all small caps )
NOTE: MANDATORY RULE #1 CANDIES, ETC. ARE NOT TO BE THROWN FROM FLOATS OR OTHER MOVING VEHICLES. This is very important as we do not want to have children running on the parade route causing an accident. You must have walkers go over to the spectators to pass out items. This includes Dignitaries! Also a MUST, is that all entries are to be mechanically sound, fire extinguishers are suggested. Thank you
NOTE: MANDATORY RULE #2 The City will be going to great lengths to provide a cordoned off area (Both South Bound Lanes) of Sir Winston Churchill Avenue for people to park in the right lane that are picking up parade participants to disembark right after the end of the Parade. The City Of St Albert has said that it will be illegal for anyone to ride on a float or in the back of a half-ton truck anywhere other than on the Parade Route or the Designated Disembarking Area provide on Sir Winston Churchill! Absolutely No Exceptions (This Includes any motor vehicle without proper Licence Plates) as Tickets will be issued by the local RCMP. Again we repeat, your group will have to have your pick up vehicles located on Sir Winston Churchill to pick up participants or to load any vehicles!
Note: MANDATORY RULE #3Profanity written on the float will result in your entry being removed and future year entries will be refused. Shouting out profane slogans or chants will also result in float being immediately removed and future year entries refused.
