  • Liability Waiver

    LIABILITY WAIVER: All applications will be evaluated by members of the Christmas Parade Committee. After receiving and evaluating the entry application, you will be notified by mail or email of your entry’s approval or denial. The undersigned hereby releases Experience Grants Pass, the City of Grants Pass or others involved in this event from all unknown damages, injuries, losses and/or claims suffered by participants to persons or property.

  • Must Read

    MUST READ: It is imperative that all entries have some “wow” factors incorporated into their showing. This can include using lights, glittery objects, ribbon, exciting signage, festive attire or other creative and appealing decor. An undecorated car does not add to the magic and fun of the parade. Please put creative effort into your entry and your attire to truly make this parade bright, merry and magical! **Need help finding ways to use lights in your entry? Many stores, such as Walmart, Target and Home Depot, sell battery-operated lights for as low as $4 or power inverters (which plug into your cigarette lighter, making an AC outlet to plug your lights into) for as low as $13.
