  • You cannot sell anything along the parade route without a proper rolling vendor permit. Contact the permit office at 985-732-6211.
  • Do not throw objects or interfere with participants in the parade.
  • Rowdy/obnoxious behavior, fighting, and nudity will not be tolerated. This includes profanity or loud music with profanity.
