The parade experience is dependent on participation and expenditures on items that add to the festivities. Last year we had Superheroes, stiltwalkers, bands, etc. What we add this year depends on you.

FAQ: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS. This will be updated from time to time as new questions arise. This event has a lot of moving parts (literally) and meeting the needs of all participants is

1. WHEN ARRIVING WHERE DO I ENTER THE LINE UP?

Enter the line up at the intersection of E. Jefferson and S. State. If you simply head south on main street you will be facing the wrong direction and will need to turn around at some point to face the direction the parade is going. This tends to be difficult for many floats and was a cause for great confusion last year.

2. DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A FLOAT ENTRY TICKET IF I PURCHASE A PACKAGE?

No. A package includes a float entry.

3. WHAT DOES THE PAYMENT FOR A TICKET GO TO?

The ticket sales go towards event police costs, insurance, the purchase of food for the cookout, port-o-potty rental, and paid entrants such as professional bands or the like which would not otherwise be in our parade. If any monies are left over they are entered into a general fund for the distribution of scholarships to Oconomowoc Area High School students seeking a higher education.

4. DO I NEED A FLOAT ENTRY TICKET FOR EVERYONE THAT IS TAKING PART IN MY FLOAT?

NO. Only one ticket is needed per float, walking unit, political group, fire department, etc. If the crowd would identify you as a unified group, you need only one float entry ticket.

FRUSTRATED WITH THE SITE? GOT A GOOD QUESTION? HELP US IMPROVE BY EMAILING OR CALLING IN YOUR QUESTION. WE WILL RESPOND AS SOON AS OUR SCHEDULES ALLOW AND WILL HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO IMPROVE THIS PROCESS EVERY YEAR WITH YOUR SUPPORT.

Notes:

501(c)(3) organizations may contact the Host to obtain a promotional code if the $25.00 general entrant ticket is not manageable with the organization's 2016 budget.
