Second Weekend in June
The Sparwood Coal Miner Days Society invite you to get involved and partner with us for Coal Miner Days. We would invite you to participate in the Coal Miner Days Parade on June 9th, 2018. Showcasing your business or organization through community spirit benefits everyone involved. There is no entry fee to participate in the parade. However, all parade participants must register. The Parade will form between 9:30 am and 10:30 am at the Greenwood Mall parking lot and judging will begin 10:00 am.
You must register at the check-in table prior to 9:45 and be in your marked spot by 10:00 in order to be judged. If you are not in place before 10:00 you will be required to join at the end of the parade and you will not be considered for judging.
The Parade is scheduled to begin at 11 am sharp!
The Free Press has generously donated three prizes for businesses. The first place winner of the business parade entry will win a half page advertisement space (value $500). Second place will receive a quarter page valued at $250 and third will receive an eighth page advertisement valued at $125.
The parade committee reserves the right to bar any entrant not conforming to the rules and regulations. Any entrant refusing to follow Police or Parade official’s instructions or any entrant deemed a hazard to others, or any entrant whose entry is offensive to the public will be ejected. All floats must carry a dry chemical five-pound fire extinguisher. Please note, the District of Sparwood has a policy that prohibits the throwing of candy from any floats or vehicles. Anyone wishing to disperse candy must do so by walking along the route to discourage children from running into the roadway.
Please complete the enclosed parade entry form and return to the below address, Sparwood Chamber of Commerce, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to (250) 425-7130 by June 1st.
