    2. Please refrain from throwing anything from your float or vehicle.  We ask that any items being distributed are thrown by walkers only and thrown over the barricade tape.  The public should remain behind the marked barricade tape at all times.
    3. Please use caution while proceeding to your marker. Your extra caution could prevent an accident.

    6. All float leaders or drivers are responsible for anyone riding on their float or trailer and any injuries that may result.
    7. Each entry is responsible for ensuring their entry maintains the pace with the rest of the parade.  Large gaps may indicate to the spectators the parade has ended which poses a safety issue. 
    8. Stopping along parade route is prohibited.
    9. There is a 75 foot maximum length and 10 foot maximum width per registered entrant.
    10. If the entry has large equipment with dual or triple wheels or wide tracks, two spotters must be walking in front of the unit at each corner. Each spotter must wear a reflective vest.
    11. Brake stands and revving of engines is prohibited as they pose safety hazards.
