This year's theme is "Celebrating 165 Years of Sherburne County." If desired, please decorate floats/units accordingly. Extra points will be awarded during judging for units that participate.

Floats with LIVE music will receive a bonus in points towards their final score by the judges. This is to help promote LIVE music in our parade.

Parade Rules:

  • All entries will be judged on originality and quality. Judges will be placed randomly along the parade route.

  • Prizes will be awarded to the top three entries. The judges' decision is final.

  • Pre-Register on or before June 30, 2021, online or by mail. Only paid entries received on or before June 30th will be eligible for prizes. Entries will be accepted through July 16th.
