The Annual Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting will be held this year on Thursday, December 1, 2016.  The Parade will begin at approximately 6 pm at the Robinson ISD High School.  Each year the parade is filled with festively decorated floats that go along with the theme set for the year.  The theme this year is: Parade of Trees.

Rules


There is no entry fee to enter the parade, and anyone in the community is invited to enter including; businesses, churches, school groups, and other community organizations or individuals. (Sorry, there will be NO four-wheelers/ATVs, golf carts or motorcycles allowed in the parade.)

Line-up is based on first come, first serve and begins at 5:15 p.m. at Robinson High School. Floats and entries may enter from the Old Robinson Road street side at the back of the high school.  Judging will be from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. only.

Floats that are not registered will not be allowed to participate. Upon registration, your entry will be provided with a registration number. The number should be displayed and clearly visible to the judges the evening of the parade.

We ask that you designate someone to walk along the float to pass out candy. Due to safety concerns, throwing candy from the float is highly discouraged.

Once parade is over all participants should return back to the school in an appropriate ride. Please do NOT use floats to transport individuals back.


Cash prize for Robinson ISD entries will be $200 for first place.  A second cash prize of $200 will be awarded to the overall first place winner (excluding school entries).
