Following the race awards ceremony at 11:30 a.m, there will be a parade. All parade participants must be lined up one hour prior to start time. All entries must register at least 24 hours in advance. Due to safety precautions, nothing is allowed to be thrown to spectators from parade participants. All horse riders must have a scooper.
