Please follow the instructions of the Watercade Parade Officials and Police Officers. Rules are for the protection of spectators and everyone in the parade.
- To minimize the inherent risks of small (and not so small) children running onto the parade route to retrieve candy and other novelties, items may only be distributed to the crowd by having people associated with a parade unit walk alongside on the street and distribute the items hand to hand.
- Try at all times to keep the parade flowing to avoid gaps.
- Alcoholic beverages are prohibited during the parade line-up, the parade, or during the taking down of a parade unit.
- No racing of engines or careless driving during the parade line-up, the parade, or during the taking down of a parade unit.
- All parade units with animals must provide for immediate cleanup throughout the entire parade.
- Marching Bands and Pipe Bands may warm up before the parade.
- If your unit wishes to play music during the parade, please have this approved at the time you submit your entry form. This will allow us to space musical units appropriately so as to not interfere with one another.
- No unit may spray water from any device, including but not limited to water guns.
- Riders on Units or Equipment. Absolutely no riders on units or equipment not designed for such use (tractor fenders, running boards, etc).
