Cash prizes in each division will be $100 for first, $50 for second and $25 for third. The school division will consist of any float entered by a school, class or school club. The non-profit division includes churches, civic clubs/groups, etc. Local businesses are also encouraged to participate. All parade participants are encouraged to use lights on their floats, and to avoid using a live Santa Claus in their theme.
