2023 Parade Registration – You may bring this completed form with you the morning of the parade or complete a form onsite. Thank you.

On-site registration will take place at the corner of Hill and Cedar Streets from 7:30am-9am. A committee member will assist you with line-up. Judging takes place from 9am-9:30am. Awards will be handed out by judges prior to parade start. Registration forms will not be accepted after 9:30am. You may still participate, but you will not be judged or announced. The parade will begin at 10 am.

The parade route will head west down Cedar Street then turn south onto Main Street and continue through historic downtown Bastrop. Bastrop Police Department will direct parade exit by having entries turn left on Emile Street. Please find a safe location to stop if needed to break down your float. Consider traveling down Emile to Hill Street, or beyond, to avoid the continuing parade. Thank you.
