How to enter a float in the parade!

The Miracle on Kansas Avenue Parade features “lighted” holiday-themed entries and the official arrival of Santa! We encourage you to advocate for your businesses to get involved in this wonderful community event by building a float or submitting a parade entry to participate!

We’ve actually made it easier this year. Here are your steps and some additional guidelines:

Walking groups, dance teams, marching bands, bicycles, floats, car clubs and more are welcome to participate.

1. Register HERE and fill out the necessary float description form.

2. On December 7, arrive at 1st and Kansas beginning at 3pm to find a spot along the route. Please do not arrive earlier.

3. Pay the encouraged donation at the entry of $10 or more.

4. We highly encourage you to pre-register here, but we will have float description cards on site to fill out at this point if not already done. You will get your float #.

5. Wait for the parade to begin!

Here are some things to keep in mind:

Walking groups, dance teams, marching bands, bicycles, floats, car clubs and more are welcome to participate.

1. No Santa or Mrs. Claus on floats – we wouldn’t want to confuse the little kiddos with imposters, would we?

2. Candy and any other items cannot be thrown from floats but can be handed out by those walking along the parade route perimeter. Please drop directly in front of viewers so no one comes out into the road.

3. Entries should be decorated all the way around so no photographers accidently get your bad side.

4. Every entry must include lights!

5. Open flames are not allowed on entries unless contained and approved.

  • 6. Be mindful of your height clearance, you must be able to safely drive under the downtown arches.
  • 7. Pets must be leashed and kept to a one-to-one ratio. All pets must be cleaned up after.
  • 8. Horses may be entered but must wear catch bags throughout entirety of event.
  • 9. Political campaigns or statements are not allowed.
  • 10. Confetti guns and confetti devices are not allowed.

Simple as that! We would love for you to register, or simply come on out and enjoy the day!
