We want everyone to be creative, to present entertaining entries and to have safe community fun. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!
Two objectives for the Poway Rotary Parade are:
To promote community spirit among parade participants, and to provide quality entertainment for parade spectators.
The following guidelines will help you make your entry more entertaining and increase your chances of winning an award in your Parade division.
First and foremost, entries should be entertaining. Take a good look at your entry: is it visually exciting? Is it appealing to all ages, especially children? Is it colorful? Innovative? Creative? Is it in good taste? (This is a family event!)
Clearly identify your entry, with the NAME of your group or organization. Spectators want to know who you are. We suggest that you attach signs to your float or have people carry a banner at the front of your entry.
All entries especially floats, need to be viewable on both sides. All entries are encouraged to include music as part of their entry. Battery-powered boom boxes are excellent for this.
