Q: How much does it cost to enter the Grand Parade?
A: In some cases, not a cent.  Please refer to your Grand Parade Entry Packet for “EARLY BIRD ENTRY FEE” and “LATE BIRD ENTRY FEE” details.

Q: Can I learn my staging number for the order of the Grand Parade in advance of Parade Day?

Q: Can I include animals in my Parade Entry?
A: We do welcome animals within the following parameters for the health and safety of participants in our Aquafest Event. Animals must remain 100% supervised at ALL TIMES. The Aquafest "campus", especially the Parade Route, is very compact. Sudden, unpredictable circumstances may startle and/or confuse animals, causing them to become agitated or frightened; therefore, please be sure all animals are leashed or controlled by reigns or other means at all times. There can not be animals roaming freely or "off leash."

You must provide resources to "scoop the poop" as you wait in parade line-up and along the parade route. 

Failure to follow these simple rules may result in your disqualification from the awards ceremony and your future entry into the Aquafest Grand Parade.

Q: Is there a height limit for Grand Parade Entries?
A: Entries over 14ft. will not clear the power lines overhead of the Parade Route.

Q: Can our Grand Parade Entry include motorcycles and/or ATV’s?
A: Yes. Compliance with State and Local law in terms of activities, licensed drivers and insurance, etc. is required.

Q What if I miss the mailing cutoff date for sending in my entry packet, can I still be in the parade?
A. Yes. Day of parade entries can be brought to parade check-in.  These will be placed atthe end of the line-up and will not be judged.
