The Colony Parks and Recreation Department requires that all parade entries incorporate this year’s theme of "Stars and Stripes Forever, Celebrating the 50 States!" Parade lineup will be held at Peter’s Colony Elementary School on John Yates. All entries should check in with the parade coordinator. 


The awards presentation for the parade will take place immediately following the parade in The Colony High School Parking Lot. Entries that show exceptional patriotic spirit and support the parade theme will be awarded trophies and prizes. Trophies will be given to 1st - 3rd in both categories (Commercial and Non-Commercial). In addition to trophies, cash prizes will be awarded as follows: 1st Place (each category) $75, 2nd Place (each category) $25, Best Overall $100. Good luck!
