The purpose of the category list is to increase the quality and enjoyment of the parade. During the parade, each entry will be judged on the entertainment value, creativity, how well the entry was showcased and relates to this year’s theme.

The categories are the actual trophy awards. You may choose more than one if qualified.

Everyone will be considered for the Chairman’s Trophy (the entry that best presents the combination of this year’s parade theme and the 4th of July theme) and the Overall Theme Trophy (the entry that best presents the parade’s theme).
