This year's parade theme is: Keeping the Flame of Freedom

To ensure your entry a spot in the parade, please fill out the entry form below and send your payment by June 27, 2019 to:

These fees help pay for the various expenses accrued in putting on the parade including the liability insurance we are required to carry. Additionally, they allow us to provide a cash prize to the winning entries this year’s parade.

The 4th of July Celebration Committee has “Preferred Placement” for entrants again this year. For an extra $10 you can reserve a spot in the top 30 positions. Please select "Top 30" on the entry form below and send your payment immediately as "Top 30" spots are granted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Approval of your "Top 30" request is dependent on past year's compliance with rules and parade theme.

Please contact the Parade offices at (208) 850-7915 to verify that there are "Top 30" spots still available. Your spot will be secured once your payment is received, otherwise it will be released for another entry to fill.

Payment for the entry fee is to be made to the 501(c)3 non-profit organization, “We the People 4th of July Celebration Committee.”

Floats will be judged by a committee according to the way they reflect and express this year’s theme. Awards will be given as soon as possible after judging is completed.


Please carefully read the Parade and Float Rules. The Committee works hard all year to make our parade the best it can be. To accomplish this, we need your cooperation. In the past, entrants’ non-compliance with the rules, and the ignoring of parade officials’ instructions, has caused difficulties. This reduces the enjoyment of the parade for everyone. To ensure the ongoing success of the parade, we need the spokesperson for each entry to accept the responsibility to see that the parade rules and all instructions from parade officials are followed. Any complaints the committee receives will result in the assessment of penalties, which could mean being banned from future parades. Any fees assessed will be the responsibility of the non-complying entry.
