Once the entry is received participants will receive an email providing you with a number that will be assigned so that the judges will know who you are. We ask that you create and display your number on the right side of your float so that it can be seen from an upstairs area along the Parade route.
No numbers will be assigned the night of the Parade.
Batesville Kiwanis is thankful to be able to present the parade again this year and does not assume any liability for accidents that might occur from the presentation or participation in the parade.
