Entry deadline looms for Aspen July 4 parade
Aspen, CO Colorado
ASPEN – The deadline for registering to participate in Aspen’s Fourth of July parade is Thursday, July 2 at 5 p.m.
Anyone who plans to have an entry in the procession needs to complete and return an entry form at http://www.aspenchamber.org. There is no fee to participate.
The parade will begin at noon, but staging for the event begins at 9 a.m. on July 4. The staging will take place on Main Street between Aspen and Second streets; all lanes of Main Street will be closed to traffic. Parade entries will proceed in the order they line up at the staging area.
The parade route: east on Main Street (toward the Hotel Jerome), south on Hunter Street, west on Cooper Avenue, north on Galena Street, west on Hopkins Avenue, south on Mill Street and west on Hyman Avenue, dispersing at Hyman and Monarch Street.
Judging will take place as entries pass by the Hotel Jerome. Participants will be limited to two minutes for any performance in front of the judges. Recognition will go to the best entries in several categories: most patriotic, most humorous, best animal, most outrageous, best music and best children’s entry.
Candy and other favors should not be thrown from the parade route, advises the Aspen Chamber Resort Association, and water balloons won’t be permitted. Parade entries must be non-commercial and “in good taste,” the ACRA said. Entries are permitted in the parade at the director’s discretion.
