Mardi Gras is famous for elaborate parades with incredible floats – that’s why Dairy Block is throwing LoDo’s inaugural Petite Parade! Be a part of the action by building your own float starting with a shoebox base.
The parade will start at 11 a.m. and will travel around Dairy Block led by Denver’s Tivoli Brass Band, comedy anchors Mike & Kiki of the Handsome Little Devils and lots of colorful fun. Business floats are $50 to enter and the entry fee goes directly towards float prizes. Individual floats are free to enter.
Petite Parade float prizes will be awarded for Most Original Float, Best Team Theme, Best Family Float, Funniest Float and more.
- No larger than 2 ft. long, 2 ft. wide and 3 ft. tall. We highly recommend using a real shoebox as the base!
- Must be able to be pulled (on wheels)–toy wheels, skate wheels, or even cardboard wheels are okay!
- Must be family-friendly.
- Bonus points if you create your own miniature parade “throws”. NO GLITTER BOMBS
- Extra bonus points for coordinating team costumes that match your float!
