The parade theme is A Storybook Christmas and we have invited all float participants to select a children’s story to inspire the decorations they place on their float.
To participate in the contest to become Grand Marshal, please provide a paragraph responding to the question, “If you were in charge of decorating a float for the Christmas Parade, what storybook would you select to inspire your float, why that book, and how would you decorate your float?” In addition, please draw and color a picture of your float.
To participate as Grand Marshal, you and your guardian (guardian must be 18 years old or older) must be available beginning at 5:30 PM on December 6, 2018 through the end of the Christmas Parade, approximately 9:00 PM. All applications must be mailed to the Junior League at PO Box 8797, Lakeland, FL 33806 and be received by Friday, November 16, 2018.
There is no cost to apply or participate as Grand Marshal. The selection of the Grand Marshal is at the sole discretion of the Junior League of Greater Lakeland.
