PIONEER DAYS PARADE JUDGING CRITERIA FOR FLOATS AND ENTRIES
Only those entries that request to participate in judging will be judged. Please indicate on the entry form. Participants in the float categories are eligible to win cash prizes if chosen for Grand Prize, first, second or third place winners in their category.
Floats will be judged on eye appeal (25 points), originality (20 points), workmanship (20 points), adherence to the theme (15 points):
"Magic Happens When...”. The clever use of moving parts (15 points) and music or sound (5 points). The top ranking floats are most often very colorful and use a clever slogan or representation of the theme. Judges also rank the top 4 floats from 1-4 independent of the total score. Floats can be any size, but the larger the float, the more competitive it will be to win. The average major float size is 24 feet long.
Novelty floats are less elaborate and use fewer materials than the major floats, and are generally much smaller in size. Novelty floats could include decorated vehicles, wagons, handcarts, etc. Adherence to the theme is NOT important. If your float is not a part of the parade theme it would most always belong in the novelty float section. There are cash prizes for novelty floats so please don’t be afraid to enter in this category, it can be worth it!
Marching bands will not be judged however, they will be paid $100.00 for participation as long as they are marching and performing. Bands are welcome to ride on a vehicle in the parade but will not be paid for doing so.
Dance and drill teams are judged along the parade route. Equal consideration is given to the group appearance, smiling, coordination of the members, and technique. Some consideration is given to choice of music and ability of the group to move forward along the parade route. Local dance talent will judge teams.
Horses and Posses will not be judged.
Cars will not be judged
