Each award category has a panel of judges that review each entry in the selected category. Based on a list of criteria, they award points in many different areas, including safety. The scores are tabulated, and the top three entries are identified.

The key contact for each entry must wear a ribbon provided by the Parade Committee. This is the only person who will be contacted by the judges. The key contact should discuss any pertinent information about the entry with the judges.

Any discrepancies in judging will be handled by the Parade Committee.

All judging, including of bands and entries, will take place on the Parade route.

To catch the judges’ eyes, here are a few helpful hints that will make your entry appealing:

  • The theme of your entry must be clear and concise - the more original, the better.
  • Costumes, sounds, special effects, etc. should add to your entry and to it’s theme.
  • Sound and music must be clear and easy to hear.
  • Any lighting and animation should compliment the entry and be in good working order.
  • All materials should be good quality and in good working order.
  • Colours should work well together, and the entry should have good proportion, balance and depth.
  • All entries must be well-maintained and safe to travel on the parade route.
