Parade Permit applications go before the City Council for street closure approval.
Completed applications need to be submitted at least 30-60 days prior to the proposed parade date in order for the Council, which meets twice a month, to approve them prior to the event date.
Other jurisdictions may need to approve the parade plans as well, depending on the route. If the route goes over the railroad tracks, notify the Central Oregon & Pacific Railroad (CORP).
There are also associated fees. For example, the fee for a full street parade is $800.
Include the following completed items:
Submit application(s), permit approval, liability insurance(s) and fees to City Administration.
