    If you encounter a problem with your float, vehicle, or walkers, move to the side so that those behind you can keep moving. If necessary a parade monitor will ask you to step to the side so the parade can keep moving.

    All animals in the parade need to have a person responsible for cleaning up after them. No animal demonstrations allowed during the parade, everyone must keep moving.

    By request of the Town Marshall, candy must be handed out and NOT thrown!
