  1. In order to prevent children from becoming confused while viewing the parade, entries will not be allowed to have anyone or anything dressed as Santa Claus (including dolls and mannequins). This includes anyone in your group that has a white beard and wears a Santa hat, or any red hat, that would cause him to resemble Santa. There is to be ONLY ONE SANTA CLAUS and he will be the last entry in the parade.

  3. The Committee must approve any deviation from the rules and also accepts no responsibility for false statements made by applicants or entrants.
