Parade Entrant Information

If you are interested in participating in the Fiesta Days Grand Parade, please submit a Parade Entrant Application. All entries must submit an application and must provide entertainment value (i.e. decorations, costumes, music, entertainers). The Parade is limited to approximately 100 entries and the deadline to apply is July 1 or when all the spots are full. Parade entry fees range from $0-$125 depending on entry type. Please see the Parade Entrant Application for details.

Distribution Policy

Parade Entries will be allowed to distribute literature, candy, or other promotional items during the Grand Parade. These items must be handed to spectators behind the white fog line (at the side of the road) by out-walkers. No items may be thrown from a float, vehicle, or out-walkers.

Spectator Safety

Spectators should stay behind the fog line (white line) at all times. Parents, please help us keep your children off any portion of the street assigned to the parade route. We want our Grand Parade to be FUN, but more importantly SAFE!
There will be zero tolerance for any projectile (candy, objects, water, etc.) thrown. Any water shooting devices (blasters, cannons, squirt guns, water balloons, etc.) are prohibited. Any entry violating this policy is subject to immediately being pulled from the parade.

Parade Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed in many areas throughout the parade. We are in need of block monitors to help keep the area safe by reminding parents to keep their children behind the white fog line. Volunteers are also needed to help in the staging area, carry banners in the parade, and follow horses in the parade to clean up after them. All volunteers will be provided with a Fiesta Days shirt! If you are interested, please sign up on our volunteer page.

If you have any additional questions, please email Brian & Patty Holt, Parade Chairmen or call Spanish Fork Parks & Recreation,  801-804-4600.
