Prizes for first, second and third place will be awarded to the best in four categories: floats, bands, automobiles and equine. The first-place float will receive a $300 prize.
In case of the weather not performing as merrily, Hrebec said the event would be rescheduled.
“We are closely monitoring the weather, and if were are not able to do the parade this week we would schedule the parade for the following weekend.”
