Information will be posted on this website and the Parade social media channels.

Food/Beverages.  You are allowed to bring snacks and beverages with you to the Parade. No outside alcohol may be brought in. Please visit Schmidt's at the concession area for food and beverages.

Re-entry. You may exit and re-enter the Parade of Homes in the same day, just be sure to pick-up a wristband on your way out from the kiosk in the entry/exit tent. If you do not get a wristband prior to exiting, you will not be permitted back into the Parade without purchasing a ticket.

Pets.  With the exception of service animals, pets are not allowed to attend the Parade. We do not offer a kennel service and we do not recommend leaving animals in your car while you visit.
