Breakfast and lunch sponsors should be prepared to provide a full catered meal. In years past, the wine & cheese party sponsors have provided live music. Parade homes not hosting a meal may choose to sponsor a door prize, giveaway, game or other fun activity. Meal Sponsors will will be notified of the chosen meal locations between April 3 and April 7, 2017. Please note that due to high demand, being a Meal Sponsor is not guaranteed
Meal Sponsor Terms and Conditions:
