Suwanee Fest 2017 Parade Float Contest!

Suwanee Fest now encompasses more floats than ever. However, there are never enough floats for a parade. Our colorful floats have come a long way in providing creative and attractive decorated floats; some with animation, music, and performing and/or recording artists for the enjoyment of all ages.

The Suwanee Fest Committee is pleased to announce the 2017 Suwanee Fest Parade Float Contest. Companies, neighborhoods, booster groups, and community organizations are encouraged to submit creative floats and compete for cash prizes! Prizes are awarded to floats and participants in a variety of categories, including best overall entry, best reflection of theme, most creative, and most entertaining.

We encourage you, all businesses, corporations, community and service organizations, non-profits, and neighborhoods to enter a float in this year's Suwanee Fest. Be creative with your ideas because you might walk or “float” away with a prize. The best part is seeing your creation go down the street with children jumping up and down with big smiles on their face.
