Registration Deadline: June 1

  1. COMPLETE and SUBMIT the online registration.
  2. The Union County Veterans' 4th of July Committee, Inc. maintains an insurance policy for public liability insurance to protect themselves against claims by spectators and/or entrants in the parade. Parade participants are not insured for public liability. Each unit is responsible for providing its own general liability insurance.
  3. Throwing candy, prizes, balloons, etc. from a parade unit is allowed but must be done in a manner in which no one will be injured. In the interest of safety, each unit may provide people to walk the edges of the parade route and hand out candy, etc. or toss the candy towards the ground, not directly at people.
  4. Units should be constructed and decorated so that viewing from either side is equally appealing. The entry sponsor's name should be tastefully displayed on both sides of the unit.
  5. There will be no stopping during the parade for photographs or performances as this impedes the flow of the parade. The parade will move approximately 2-3 miles per hour.
