Thank you for your interest in participating in our 41st Annual Pinellas Park Holiday Parade! Please read the following information carefully as this information will come in handy through the registration process.
Due to congestion in the lineup area and concerns regarding the length of the parade, we will only be accepting 100 applications this year. Dignitaries, official entities, marching bands and car clubs are NOT counted.
Because of limited space, there is now a $25.00, non-refundable registration fee for all participants (with the exception of marching bands) due when the application is submitted (via Credit Card). Commercial registration now costs $50.00 (including the initial registration fee, the additional $25.00 commercial fee is refundable as long as the entry is cancelled by Friday, November 22nd). The new fees are intended to discourage potential participants from registering to simply hold a spot.
In addition to the fees, participants are required to attend a meeting the week of the parade. At the meeting, parade officials will go through a brief presentation and hold a question/answer session to insure that everyone is on the same page. There are two meeting dates the week of the parade for convenience – they will be announced at a later date.
Registration runs from September 1st through November 22nd.
