Are there any decorating requirements?
All entries (aside from those that cannot) should include some sort of holiday lighting and be appropriate for viewing by all ages. The rest is up to you and your imagination.
Will parade units be allowed to broadcast music?
Yes! The performing/broadcasting of holiday music is encouraged. However, in an effort to enhance the viewing experience for spectators and offer a variety of entertainment, we’d prefer to not have the same song(s) be duplicated by multiple units. Song choices should be indicated on parade registration form and will be approved by the parade committee based on who reserved their chosen song first.
Will Santas be allowed in the parade?
While holiday themed costumes are encouraged, no parade entry will be permitted to have someone dressed in a full Santa or Mrs. Claus costume, or try to portray themselves as such. One single chamber-sponsored entry at the end of the parade will feature Santa (and possibly Mrs. Claus). This policy is important to show consideration for children (and their parents) who still believe in Santa and might be confused by seeing multiple Santas in a parade.
How can I become a Parade Sponsor?
The Winneconne Chamber Celebration of Lights Parade is made possible by donors/sponsors. Chamber members can participate in the parade at no charge. Donations of any amount are welcomed from all other participants. Anyone choosing to donate (Chamber members OR non-members) will be recognized as Parade Donors or Sponsors; sponsorship levels are Bronze/$100, Silver/$250, Gold/$500, Platinum/$2,000 with individualized recognition given for each. Please make checks to “Winneconne Chamber of Commerce” and mail to P.O. Box 126, Winneconne, WI 54986.
