Cash Prizes for Winners of Several Categories
MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (September 17, 2015) – Apply now to be part of one of the Lowcountry’s favorite holiday traditions, the 20th Annual Town of Mount Pleasant Christmas Light Parade on Sunday, Dec. 13.
Entry is open to Mount Pleasant entities only until Oct. 1 and then opens up to the entire Lowcountry. The event typically goes to a wait list status by late October. Applications are available at www.ComeOnOverMP.com.
Local schools are encouraged to apply. The Town of Mount Pleasant offers a decorating allowance for all participating schools along with cash prizes for the top two winners who are judged by a panel in two categories: creativity and education, giving schools four opportunities to win!
“School floats and community groups are the heart of the Christmas Light Parade,” said Special Events Planner Nicole Harvey. “Participating in the parade gives children of all ages the opportunity to engage in their community and offers a wonderful chance for schools to showcase their programs.”
There are nine categories with cash prizes: churches, adult community, junior community, dance/cheer, media, preschools, schools/creativity, schools/educational theme, and the People’s Choice award calculated using social media and the hashtag #VoteTheFloatMP.
Drawing large crowds of all ages, the annual Christmas Light Parade is the best way to showcase a school’s spirit, a church’s holiday traditions or a business’ community involvement. All entries must include a brightly lit and uniquely decorated float, marching band, walking group or adorned vehicle. Of course, Santa will ride on a Mount Pleasant Fire Engine for the grand finale.
A fun family event, the Mount Pleasant Christmas Light Parade is enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors each year.
“Children love participating in this amazing evening,” said Harvey. “Even if they don’t have the ability to put together a big float, we encourage schools to enter sports teams, achievement groups or service clubs.”
