Vehicle Guidelines and Liability Waiver
for all Floats, Cars, Motorcycles and Animals
(Driver or authorized individual must read and sign these guidelines.)

Because our celebration is held within the community it is necessary to enforce strict guidelines for all participants and vehicles. We must adhere to all legal restrictions and regulations in order to assure not only the good order of the event but to insure that the community is respected. All vehicles and floats in the parade must be registered with the St. Pat's for All Committee. A registration fee must be paid for each float or vehicle except those that serve exclusively as transport for the physically challenged. However, each such vehicle must be registered, decorated and accompanied by two marshals. The fee for each vehicle is $15. For floats $50. No one will be excluded because of lack of funds. The driver or authorized individual must read and sign this Vehicle Guidelines/Liability Form and provide proof of his/her drive’s license.
