WIN $1,000 for Best Float
We are keen to see more decorated floats in the parade and as encouragement we are offering cash prizes for the best floats on the day.

Past street parades have been filled with colour, music, dancing and fun; and we want to see the 2018 street parade be the most joyful and entertaining yet.

All float entries will be scored by our esteemed judges according to the following criteria:
• Fit to the 2018 theme – ‘Tumut, then & now’
• Visually entertaining
• Fun and festive

More information on the judges and runner up prizes will be announced closer to the Festival.

Parade Theme

This year the parade theme is ‘Tumut, then & now’.  We encourage all participants to use this theme as a guide to decorating floats and/or dressing up.

“Tumut, then & now” means taking a look back at those things which made Tumut what it is today, and to celebrate where we are now as a community. 

Through your floats and costumes we’d love to see diverse views of Tumut, whether it be early pioneers, great infrastructure (like the Snowy Hydro), our rich history of farming or the flourishing forestry industry.  

Why not design a float around the history of your organisation or group, showing off uniforms through the ages or different logos, old and new machinery etc.  

There’s so much to be proud of about our communities, or town and its surrounds, and these are but a few examples.
