Parade Vehicle line-up is accessed by travelling northbound on Monterey Road.
Law Enforcement Officers and volunteers will direct floats and vehicles on Monterey Road at Kingswood Terrace to enter the Vehicle Line-up. Line-up starts at 4:30 PM. You can make last minute adjustments to your float. Remember, you need at least 1,000 lights!
Walker/Marcher line-up and drop off is in Smithfield Plaza across from Fresh Market, it is recommended that drop-off vehicles come from downtown via SE Ocean Blvd or via Indian Street to St. Lucie Blvd to SE Ocean Blvd in order to avoid Monterey Road. Monterey Rd. will be partially CLOSED and extremely backed up. Drop off begins at 5:30 PM and ends at 6:00 PM. Drop off has to be a quick process so that we can start the parade on time!
All floats, vehicles, and walkers must exit the parade route via SE Georgia Ave. please follow directions from our volunteers so we can keep everyone safe.
Judging will take place during the parade in front of the Grandstand, located just east of Hospital Road.
Bands and performers may stop in front of the Judges' Grandstand for 45 seconds to perform.
Awards will be announced immediately following the parade, on this website. Please check our Facebook pages and/or websites for winning floats and bands!
