Ride, Walk or Float in the Parade of Nations!

by Parade of Nations

Community groups, fraternal organizations, religious organizations, student organizations, etc., are invited to create a float or organize a walking group for the Parade of Nations!

Awards will be given to the top three floats that best represent this year’s theme ($300 for first place, $200 for second place, $100 for third place). Additional information on the judging criteria will be shared at the end of August.

The 2023 Parade of Nations begins at 11 a.m. on Sept. 16 at the Quincy Green in Hancock and ends at the Dee Stadium in Houghton. Please submit the float application form if you intend to enter a float, and submit the walking group form if you intend to organize a walking group.

Approved floats, accompanying walkers and walking groups will be asked to arrive at the parade start between 10 a.m. and 10:40 a.m. to allow time to ensure vehicles are in parade order. Applications received after Sept. 9 will be considered, but are not guaranteed.

To assist organizations with their float entry for the Parade of Nations, registered student clubs and organizations can seek up to $100 in funding. Awards are available until all funds are exhausted. Requests must be submitted using the grant application form by Sept. 1 in order to receive the grant before the event. 

Please only submit one grant request per group. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. You will be contacted within five business days of submitting the form.
