Community organisations, school groups and local businesses are encouraged to participate by entering a float in the 2018 Street Parade.  The parade is a Tumut institution and is loved by everyone who attends. 

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. 

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

WIN $1,000 for Best Float

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
