Rules & Guidelines

The planning committee is solely responsible for the safety of all participants and spectators during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 

For this reason, we will have extra safety measures in place, in keeping with guidelines and regulations set forth by the Province of Ontario and the Eastern Ontario Health Unit.

It is our goal to make this occasion as fun as possible for everyone involved. With this in mind, we thank everyone in advance for complying with the rules and guidelines.

Important Notes for Participants:
  1. Floats/Displays will not need to be ‘manned’ all evening, so long as you have filled the space well and it’s lit up. If you need a committee member to turn off your lights for you at the end of the evening, please let us know in advance (you must be on-site to turn the lights on at the beginning of the event).
  2. Generators are to be kept behind your display.
  3. Float participants will be able to park their vehicles behind their displays, so long as they arrive before the start time.
  4. We strongly encourage participants to test their lights in advance of the event start.
