  • music is mandatory and can be pre-recorded or live
  • floats need to have a theme relating to the Christmas season
  • the handing out of treats, promo items etc. to the crowds is encouraged, however, items cannot be thrown from floats as that is too dangerous
  • this is a rain/shine/snow/sleet event

*Please note registration forms must be dropped off in person, and registration is not official until the registration fee is paid in full*

Prizes:

4 x $100 Quinte Mall gift cards, and a Certificate, will be awarded to float entrants for …
