PINELLAS PARK – Celebrate Pinellas Park is accepting applications for the 2012 Pinellas Park annual Holiday Parade on Dec. 8.
Participation is limited to first 100 registrants, not counting dignitaries, official entities, marching bands and car clubs.
Cost is a $25, non-refundable registration fee for all participants except marching bands. The fee is due when the application is submitted. Commercial registration is $50, including the initial registration fee. The additional $25 commercial fee is refundable as long as the entry is canceled by Friday, Nov. 30. The new fees are intended to discourage potential participants from registering to simply hold a spot, according to Celebrate Pinellas Park’s website.
Participants are required to attend a parade meeting. Meetings are scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 4-5, 7 p.m., at the Pinellas Park Performing Arts Center, 4951 78th Ave. N.
