CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE MONDAY, JULY 4TH, 2016 - MAYVILLE, NEW YORK -10:00A.M. 


THEME:   “STAND FOR THOSE WHO STAND FOR US.”
MC:  MATT WARREN
REVIEWING STAND:  MAYVILLE DEPOT



 

         We ask that all parade applications be returned to the above address by June 27th.  You can still enter the parade after this date but APPLICATIONS RECEIVED AFTER JUNE 27th AND ALL UNITS REGISTERING THE MORNING OF THE PARADE WILL BE PLACED IN THE 3RD DIVISION. 

Registration begins at 8:00 A.M. on the courthouse lawn.  Each group should appoint ONE representative to sign them in at the registration table.  All preregistered units please make sure that you register under the same group name that was sent in on your parade application.  Antique/classic cars and all fire apparatus will be judged at 9:00 A.M. in the Chautauqua Lake Central School parking lot.  All other units will be judged in the reviewing area during the parade.   ANY UNIT THAT STOPS TO PERFORM IN THE JUDGING AREA DURING THE PARADE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. 

            Buses are requested to unload and park in the lot on the east side of Vista Drive.  They will not be permitted in any lot where the parade is being formed.  The committee requests that units do not hand out balloons, beads, or flags along the parade route, as that is one of their fundraisers to offset the cost of the parade. The committee does encourage units to include music in their entry but requests that you notify us on your parade entry so that we can properly space the music out in the parade line up.  If you have a “loud” (e.g. hot rod) entry we ask you to be considerate of entries with children or animals that may be near you (no burn outs or excessive revving). Thank you!
