All of us at the Sons and Daughters of Erin are hoping to make this the biggest and best parade that Southern Nevada has ever seen. We need your support to make that happen.  Please follow the rules below.

We have to ask that items not be thrown to the crowds from vehicles. You may walk & hand out items, but please do not throw them.  Our children's safety comes first.

All entries must move in a forward line of march/direction with no stopping for performances.  If you are handing out anything, or intermingling with the spectators in any way, please allow the parade to keep moving past you and you can catch up with your group.

In order to lend additional color and flavor to the occasion, and to increase spectator appeal, we request the following minimum decoration requirement:

a. All autos and trucks should be decorated from window down (except special industrial equipment, antique autos and special interest autos).

b. Entries must not be wider than 20 feet or taller than 17 feet.

c. You may display any number of suitable identifying cards relating to your business or organization.

d. In order for the announcers/commentators to identify your entry, your entry number must be displayed on the right hand side of your entry.

 All participants must be dressed in Family Acceptable dress code. NO Water Guns, Water Balloons or Spraying of Water or Silly String are allowed from entries. We reserve the right to deny an entry if the terms and conditions are not adhered to.
