The details within this application form will inform you of the 2019 parade entry requirements and assist you with the preparation.
Here are a few things to consider...
In order to enhance the parade experience and engagement with the crowd, the following guidelines apply:
Strictly NO non-essential vehicles are permitted as part of your entry. Should a sign written vehicle form part of your concept, it must have visual appeal or be adequately decorated. Your ideas around this need to be discussed early with event organisers.
Stationary demonstrations are only permissible if the parade has come to a halt.
Entry length guidelines of 10m (or 4 vehicles) exist. Please email event organisers early to discuss special considerations.
There is a strict limit of 150 vouchers / promotional hand outs per entrant. Vouchers and items must be discussed with event organisers early and approved by the City of Ballarat by the 19th of February and prior to their production.
These initiatives help ensure the event continues to remain a crowd favourite and free platform for groups to promote themselves to the Ballarat and wider community.
Please note, it will be compulsory for your group to:
Complete this application form
Have public liability insurance
Have a representative complete the City of Ballarat online safety induction
Have a representative attend one of the pre-parade briefing sessions to complete the City of Ballarat volunteer induction process.
This person will then be responsible for communicating the details to their group’s participants.
At any time should you need clarification or assistance with your entry, please do not hesitate to contact event organisers, Oregional Collective:
