Candy Policy: If you are distributing candy we prefer that it be handed out by walkers vs. thrown from a vehicle for the safety of the spectators. If candy is going to be thrown from a vehicle the driver assumes all responsibility to ensure it is distributed away from the vehicle and that everyone is clear of the vehicle before operation.
Water/Squirt Gun Policy: Not Allowed - No Exceptions
Awards: Most awards will be handed out at the Bandstand, with the exception of Marching Bands, Twirlers & Cheering, these will be handed out outside the Fair Office (Sunny Side Park) roughly 30 minutes after the parade ends.
