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), the use of moving parts (15 points) and music or sound (5 points). The top ranking floats are most often very colorful and include 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 floats are generally the most competitive in declaring a winner. 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, DANCE & DRILL TEAMS, HORSES & POSSES, and CARS are not judged
