The Chasco fiesta parade is very strict with rules and regulations.If you decide to enter please be aware and keep in my the following:
The Regulations for The Chasco Fiesta Parade
A parade by its nature is an entertainment medium, and the contribution of each unit to this concept is critical. Artistic beauty, use of colors, animation, special effects, originality, rider personnel and visual appeal all come into play in determining the acceptability of the entry. Because of this “total show concept” OUR PARADE IS NOT A PLATFORM FOR POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS, SOCIAL ISSUES OR TARGETED SPECIAL GROUPS. NO ENTRY WILL BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PARADE IF, IN THE JUDGMENT OF THE PARADE COMMITTEE, IT REFLECTS SUCH ISSUES. By making an application for entry, it is understood and agreed that the decision of the Parade Selection Committee is final.
The Parade Selection Committee will approve all applications. Any and all sponsors (business, organizations, media, etc.) must be listed on the float application; however, listing more than one sponsor is discouraged and may not be accepted.
Insurance coverage is mandatory for all parade participants. Please provide a certificate of insurance for: West Pasco Chamber of Commerce and the City of New Port Richey as additional insured’s.
All units MUST be fully decorated. Flatbed trucks and automobiles with a few streamers and a business name are NOT acceptable. A VIOLATION OF THIS WILL RESULT IN THE ENTRY BEING BARRED FROM THIS PARADE AND FUTURE PARADES. Exceptions include antique cars, dignitaries’ cars and pickup vehicles of honor guard units.
Walking units are limited to musical units, drill teams or unique units determined to have entertainment quality and approved by the parade selection committee.
On arrival at the parade formation area, entries not conforming to the description on the application may be prohibited from participating in the parade. The Chasco parade officials will have the right to reject any parade entry that does not meet the parade standards and criteria. They will have the right to reject unacceptable units’ right up to the start of the parade
On a side note The NPR Holiday Parade is much less strict with there regulations and rules. It is smaller but does draw alot of people.
How many of you have bicycles? Perhaps a bike parade? We could dress our bikes up with green messages and our website lol!
