The City of Rancho Cucamonga invites businesses, schools, youth groups and other organizations to submit applications to participate in the 2018 Founders Day Community Parade. The theme for this year's parade is "Music for the Generations: The Soundtrack of Our Lives." Join us for the fun on Saturday, November 10th at 9:00 a.m.

Entries will travel along the parade route that begins south of Day Creek and Foothill Boulevards, continues south to Jack Benny Drive, and concludes at the Rancho Cucamonga Epicenter. Groups are encouraged to create small floats or themed marching units. All entries must have a banner to identify their group, and be uniformed, costumed, or dressed to appropriately represent the parade theme. Award categories include best representation of theme, most spirited, most participation, and best overall float. The group that best embodies the spirit of the day will be presented the coveted Founders Award.

Participation for non-profit groups is free and commercial businesses will be charged an entry fee of $50. Please note that all groups must pre-register and submit an entry application by Monday, October 1, 2018.
