Band Day 2017 Parade Float Entry
Band Day is the oldest and longest running festival in Williston, starting in 1927. Held the Saturday of every Mother's Day weekend, the parade portion features amateur student marching bands from Williston and the surrounding area and a wide variety of floats and other parade entires that showcase local businesses, civic groups, teams and clubs. 
The parade will start at 10:30am, after the Band Day Mile fun run. Line up begins at 9am; please check in with your parade starter (wearing a fluorescent safety vest) by 9:30am.

To help defray the cost of producing Band Day, a minimum $20 donation per parade entry is required. Please follow this link to the payment screen either before or after you register for the parade.

-No controversial entries, per the CVB's discretion.
-No candy THROWN into the crowd or onto the street from a vehicle. If you would like to hand out candy, please designate a walker(s) to walk along the edge of the route to distribute candy. This is a safety issue for children.
