Lyons Merchants Association presents the

2018 Lyons Lighted Christmas Parade

December 1, 2018 at 6pm

The theme this year is “Christmas through the Ages”.

Plaques will be awarded to the first and second place winners for float entries ONLY. The three divisions are Religious, Educational, and Commercial. They will be judged for theme, uniqueness and originality, workmanship, and best use of lights. Entries must be in place, fully decorated, and ready for judging by 5pm. There will be no exceptions.

Please note that all entries are responsible for the following:

  • Entries must make a sign identifying their group. Floats must have their number mounted on the right front and right side of the float to assist the judges in identifying the float.
  • Each entry needs a separate entry form (i.e. each float, car, and marching unit must have a separate entry form. Make as many copies of entry forms as needed.)
  • Contact person should make sure category and type of entry is checked on form. Entry forms will be returned if information is incomplete.
  • No entry except the designated official “Santa” float will be permitted to have Santa or any variation of Santa on it.
  • For safety reasons, on one will be allowed to ride on the hood of any vehicle.
  • We ask that you do not throw candy, gum, etc. from any vehicle or float.
