The City of Rancho Cucamonga invites businesses, schools, youth groups, and other organizations to submit applications for participation in the 2019 Founders Day Community Parade. The theme for this year’s parade is “Through the Eyes of A Child: Celebrating Children’s Storybooks.” Join us for the excitement on Saturday, November 9th 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 wear uniforms or costumes that depict their favorite storybook characters and 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 receive the coveted Founders Award.
