Due to the growing size of the Pumpkinfest Parade, the City of South Lyon has asked the Pumpkinfest Board to initiate the following changes effective for the 2023 Parade:
1) Pumpkinfest Parade entries are limited to 60 entries.
2) Only ONE (1) vehicle is allowed per entry. (Truck+trailer=1)
3) There is to be NO throwing of candy or other objects from any parade participant. Throwing of candy or other objects is in direct violation of City ordinance Section 58-81 and 58-82 which states "It shall be unlawful for any person to wrongfully throw or propel any snowball, missile or object toward/from any person and/or moving motor vehicle." Failure to comply with any part of these ordinances can result in removal from the Pumpkinfest Parade and/or ticketing from local law enforecment.
If you are found in violation of these above ordinances, you or your organization will no longer be allowed to participate in future Pumpkinfest Parades and/or events.
Parade participants who wish to hand out candy etc.. may walk on either side of their entry, close to the curb; ensuring no spectators will enter the street to obtain candy or other objects.
4) Parents/guardians are responsible for their minors' behavior. Minors are not to be left unattended. There is to be absolutely NO spectators in the street during the parade.
