The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department is now accepting entries for lighted floats to participate in the 2021 Electric Light Parade. This year’s parade theme is “Stars and Stripes Forever!” The parade begins at 9 p.m. Saturday, July 3rd at Apodaca Park, 801 E. Madrid Avenue. It will travel south on Solano Drive, east on Hadley Avenue, and end at Maag Softball Complex.
There are no entry or participation fees, so all commercial and non-commercial groups and clubs are encouraged to participate. Trophies will be awarded for first through third place in the commercial and non-commercial categories, and a best overall float trophy. Floats will be judged on originality, depiction of the theme, and effective use of lights. For parade application packets, contact Crystal Copper, [email protected].
Registration begins May 14 and the deadline to enter this year’s Electric Light Parade is June 25 at 5 p.m., no exceptions. An option of an in-person or Zoom meeting will be offered to participants to outline parade details. Meeting attendance is required in order to participate.
