Welcome to the “paperless” Grand Parade Entry Form!
The online Grand Parade Entry Form will enable Western Welcome Week’s small office staff to more efficiently process and manage the high number of parade entries it receives.
Safe and Secure
Western Welcome Week (WWW) uses a professional data-collection/form-processing application that employs the same level of security used by online banking and e-commerce providers. Our Parade Entry Form does not ask for any private information such as a social security number or password, and dozens of parade applications have been submitted without issue. If you have any concerns, please contact the WWW office during business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please have the following items ready when starting your Grand Parade Entry Form:
- Valid email address;
- Credit card for entry fees; not necessary if paying by check;
- Certificate of Insurance if there are horses or other live animals in your entry (scan or high-quality digital photo — must be ledgible);
- Be sure you know your Parade Category; selecting the incorrect category could affect your entry fee and delay processing your entry.
Entry deadline is July 15 every year — If there are any spots left after the deadline, WWW will continue to take applications until the parade is full or one week before the parade, whichever is first. There is a $25 late fee for ALL entries received after the deadline, including bands. Also, changes and/or additions to your entry after it’s been submitted may incur an additional charge. Changes or additions cannot be accepted after July 31. Acceptance of each entry is at the discretion of the Parade Committee.
Entry Fee — WWW is pleased to accept a check OR a credit card for your entry fee payment! Payment by credit card is offered as a convenience. You do not have to pay by credit card but if you do, your payment is securely processed through PayPal, one of the world’s most well-known and trusted online payment systems. A PayPal account is not required for payment. If you pay by credit card, your card will not be charged until your entry has been reviewed and accepted by WWW. If you select the incorrect Parade Category for your entry, WWW may correct your selection and your entry fee may change.
Amplified Sound Fee — WWW charges a $10 fee for entries with amplified sound. Entries with amplified sound are limited and not guaranteed. This does not apply to Marching Bands or Pipe Bands. All amplified sound must be directed to the sides of the entry; no forward- or rear-facing amplification. Amplified sound cannot interfere with or be a nuisance to other parade entries.
Live Animals — Live animals must be under control at all times. All dogs must be on a leash at all times (Littleton City Code 6-2-4). Be sure to bring extra water for your animals. Water is available to fill your horse troughs at the ACC equestrian staging area. Water is NOT available at the Gallup Street staging area. The 1.5-mile parade route is asphalt and can get very hot for pet’s paws in the summertime.
Entries that include animals (horses, ponies, mules, dogs, cats, chickens, goats, etc.) are required to include a certificate of insurance naming Western Welcome Week, Inc. as an additional insured.Marching Bands — Due to the Grand Parade's growth in popularity, parade timing, and staging limitations, the number of marching bands that can be accommodated in the parade is limited. Priority will be given to bands based on prior attendance and space availability.
Political Entries — Only one entry per candidate, seated official, and political party. Walking is not allowed with any political entry.
