SAND CREEK festival, inc. PRESENTS
The Sand creek summer daze flotilla parade (ON LAND)
Friday, August 16, 2019
Come out to the Floating Flotilla Parade (AROUND ATHLETIC PARK!) and watch Sand Creek Charlie, the honorary festival leader and protector of Sand Creek, lead the ceremony to kick of the 2019 Sand Creek Summer Daze Festival.
Since this year’s Floating Flotilla Parade will be a little dryer than last year (due to Mother Nature taking out the dam with a gazillion inches of rain), the parade will be by vehicle and trailer float around Athletic Park Circle! The theme of this years parade is Pirates On Sand Creek! Enter a float for FREE and decorate your craft to your own “Curse of Sand Creek” theme. The more floats participating, the more fun this event will be! Awards will be given for three categories, Best Float (Family/Individual), Best Float (Business or Organization) and Most Creative Float. A $250 prize will be given to the Most Creative Float and a $75 prize for the other two categories. This is your chance to be in the parade without having to own a boat.
We will begin “floating” at 5:30 pm starting from the parking lot of the 4H building on the southwest side of the park and then progress around Athletic Park Circle. Once in front of the west parking lot, there will be a quick festival kick off ceremony and then the parade will end back at the 4H parking lot. Entrances to the park will be closed from the start of the parade (5:25) to the end (6:20 pm).
If you can’t enter your own float, then partake of the fun by watching from around the park. We encourage businesses to enter or sponsor floats, as well as churches, clubs and organizations as well.
There are no specifications on the type of floats, but it must be a truck or trailer with a sea or pirate theme. If a car is entered it must somehow present a pirate type theme.
Simply fill out the form to enter your craft in this year’s Floating Flotilla Parade (ON LAND) and bring them with you to enter.
