47th Annual Maple Leaf Festival Parade Application Deadline Quickly Approaching
The deadline for return of applications to place a float or other entry into the 47th Annual Maple Leaf Parade is quickly approaching. All applications must be received at the Carthage Chamber of Commerce, 402 S. Garrison, no later than 5 PM on September 30, 2013.
The Maple Leaf Car Show has pledged a $250 cash prize for the best traditional float entry. Maple Leaf Chair Jeanine Poe says “We sincerely hope that this year, parade entrants will embrace the theme of Sounds of Celebration. Last year’s classic floats and decorations were so much fun.”
In order to provide the best service to all parade entrants, September 30 is a firm deadline. Absolutely no unregistered, last-minute entries will be allowed in the parade. All parade entries are at the discretion of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce and the Maple Leaf Committee.
You may pick applications up at the Chamber office between 8:30 and 5:00 Monday thru Friday or visit the Chamber’s website www.carthagechamber.com.
