2024 Parade Application

Event to be held Saturday, September 7, 2024 at 11:00 AM
The Burnsville Festival and Fire Muster Parade is a great opportunity to show your company or organization’s culture and employees on display to thousands of parade watchers. We encourage displays, floats, trailers, or any type of method you can walk, ride or drive in the parade.

Please note: Any messages, decorations and entertainment in your parade entry must be family friendly to all ages and respectful of all people and consistent with our mission and values.

NOTE: We require all forms to be completed and payments to be made using our new online system. No exceptions will be made as our volunteer support staff can no longer handle manual hard copies of applications and payments by mail.

 

YOU MUST KEEP PACE:
We appreciate and celebrate all entries for our winderful community parade. Our parade is for the entertainment of the community. The consistency of participants staying close to the entry in front of you is paramount to the enjoyment of the spectators. Large gaps cause spectators to depart early ruining a full parade experience. 

For this reason, if a participant fails to remain WITHIN 50 FEET behind the entry in front of them, our parade marshalls will remove them from the parade at the next intersection.

NOTE: To address the entrants performing short programs in front of the BCTV cameras, those performing will be allowed a MAXIMUM OF 60 SECONDS to perform, then move forward and speed up to catch up to the entry in front of them.

 

PLEASE DO NOT MAIL ANY FORMS OR PAYMENTS TO US VIA MAIL!  ALL PAPER SUBMISSIONS WILL BE RETURNED AT OUR CONVENIENCE AND MAY NOT BE HANDLED UNTIL AFTER THE EVENT CONCLUDES.

All electronically submitted forms will be prioritized based on when they are received.

Parade Fees:

  • Fire Truck Parade Entry (Not for Hire): Free
  • 501C3 & Gov Non-Profit: $50
  • Business & Political: $250
