The Price International Days celebration is coming up and part of that tradition is the annual parade that scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 31. Parade Coordinator, Megan Marshall stopped by Castle Country Radio to share all the details.
Right now, is the time for families, business, civic groups or teams to put together a float for the parade. “That’s what we’re really pushing this year is we have added a lot more categories for trophy winners and advertising packages. We really just want to stress that its for anyone to register for and entry is completely free to participate in the parade. It’s a great way for businesses and organizations, non-profits to advertise for free while engaging with the community,” stated Marshall. The entry winners will be able to display the category and trophy they won on their float throughout the parade route. Types of entries can range from flatbed trailers, vehicles, bicycles, walking groups, motorcycle clubs, riding horses and/or ATV/UTVs.
Early registration for the parade is currently taking place. “It’s very simple, it’s all digitized. You just go to Price City’s website https://www.pricecityutah.com/ there’s just an online form you fill out, just a few questions describing your contact information, and what type of entry you are putting in and you’ll get a spot, easy as that. You’ll get all the instructions emailed to you. It’s an amazing, fun experience. It’s a great way to get your kids involved in decorating floats, during the time leading up to it. Again, for the family entries, businesses, its just a great time for everyone,” said Marshall. Participants should be aware that parade officials have been working together with Price City Police to set some basic guidelines for the parade in order to keep spectators and participants safe; guidelines can be found along with the parade entry form on the Price City website.
Not only are parade officials looking for entries but they are also looking for nominations for Parade Grand Marshall and Citizen of the Year. “Unlike St. Patrick’s Day we just have a Grand Marshall, we also added the category of Citizen of the Year, so we encourage everybody to go again to Price City’s website https://www.pricecityutah.com/ and you can nominate an outstanding community member for Grand Marshall and/or Citizen of the Year. Just somebody who has gone above and beyond, and giving back to this community that we all love and they deserve some extra recognition,” said Marshall. The International Days committee will review all nominations.
