We sincerely apologize for the disrespectful expressions during the parade by an unauthorized group who entered the parade undetected, and without registration or consent of the Parade Committee. We apologize to those in attendance who may have seen or been offended.
The Parade Committee does not permit any form of expression which is disrespectful or hateful towards another person or group.
This group and any other groups or entries who violate our Parade Entry Rules will not be permitted to enter future parades.
Our Parade Entry Rules include the following:
"All entries are required to exhibit proper decorum ... and family oriented behavior in the staging area and during the parade, including no profane music."
"...communicate these rules to everyone in your entry."
"Any deviation from the rules will result in disqualification from current and/or future parades."
Every Parade Entry applicant receives a copy of these Rules and signs a promise to comply.
We have already revised rules and compliance protocols to prevent a similar event.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we seek to improve the parade and create the best experience for our community.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you for the 4th of July Parade in 2022.
