Dear Friends & Neighbors:

You are invited to be a part of Rice Lake’s Annual Aquafest Parade, Sunday, June 13, 2021.  The parade begins at 12:30 p.m. with the lineup at 11:00 a.m.

This year’s theme will be, “Old Glory”.  As much as we would like every entry to participate in our theme, we understand you may have a float or display ready to go, which is fine.  However, those who do not have a parade-type of display, novelty or city representation will be asked to decorate in our theme. (Example:  You cannot roll your van down the street with your business name on it.) You must do something in line with our theme or make your presentation more “parade worthy.”

We will award 1st and 2nd place prizes with monetary awards for our best entries in Most Creative, City/Community, and 4-H.

Parade entry is free however, there is a $25 fee for commercial units, and a $50 fee for political entries. All entries must abide by the above rules.

Marching bands in the parade will be presented with a commemorative certificate for your participation. In addition, the units will be judged according to the Wisconsin school marching form as they pass the reviewing stand.

A self-addressed registration card is enclosed for your convenience.  Please return the card even if you are unable to participate.  Your unit will be placed at the discretion of the parade organizer, and your line-up information will be mailed to you the week prior to the parade.

The Aquafest Parade Committee appreciates your participation and compliance of the rules.  Remember throwing candy is not allowed; however, walkers may hand it out.

We want the parade to be another great way to join in the fun of Aquafest 2019! Please give our contact information to anyone you think might like to participate. We look forward to seeing you at our parade!


John Nelson
Aquafest Parade Chairman
