FLOAT Sponsorship Opportunities
Sponsored Floats: The City of O’Fallon has a limited number of completed rental floats. With this type of entry, we allow up to 16 representatives to walk with the float representing your business or organization (more may walk behind the float as a lighted group). Walkers may hand out candy and approved business promotional items along the parade route. The name of your business/organization will be put on the float as well, banner size determined by your sponsored amount (full float is largest banner, half float is half sized, etc). Once your application has been accepted, a float list will be made available to you to make your float selection. These floats will be made available to paid sponsors in the order the application is received, while supplies last.

Platinum Sponsor: Full float: Large Banners on both sides of float $1000 to include participation of up to 16 employees/ representatives.

What do you need money for?
To put on a parade.
Where will the money go?
Into a bank account to cover expenses for putting on a parade.
Seriously, why do you need sponsors?
The parade was revived in 2017 by a brand new group of volunteers and we had only 3 weeks exactly to get the parade together. A few float beds, floats, and the shed the floats are housed in are all in need of repair. Some may even need to be sent out to pasture and replaced with safe, shiny new ones. The better the floats, the bigger the crowd, the more exposure for our community and our businesses. Volunteers work endless hours to put these units together and we hope they don't have to cover the cost in addition to their hours. These are community members stepping up to the plate and offering their time and skills. We hope to be a self sustaining parade through these donations so we can keep it running for many years in the future. No one is paid to put on this parade. All money raised goes towards the expenses of this event. Thank you for helping us keep this tradition up and running!
