The MDA reserves the right to select and place parade entries in the parade depending on the needs of the event as a whole. Placement requests will be carefully considered, but are not guaranteed. Any changes to vehicles, music, or participation must be communicated to the Event Manager immediately as they occur. Applicants will be invoiced and sent details of participation upon completion of jury selection. Payment must be made in full 30 days after acceptance or no later than November 12, 2019. Entry fees that remain unpaid or failure to provide proof of insurance (for entries that include animals) after 30 days or by the final due date (November 12, 2019), will result in forfeited participation.
