Milton Independence Day Parade Registration Forms Available Now

Registration forms to participate in the 2014 Milton Independence Day Parade are now available at Milton City Hall, 430 E. High Street, Suite 3, and on the City of Milton website (www.milton-wi.gov). The Milton Independence Day Parade will take place on Friday, July 4, 2014 at 1 p.m.

The 2014 parade theme is “Honoring America’s Heroes.” First, Second, and Third Place awards will be presented to parade participants for “Best Use of Theme.”

In an effort to assist with planning for the event, participants are asked to submit completed applications to City Hall by noon on June 20, 2014. In the interest of animal safety and to comply with requirements from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, parade entries with horses will be required to show documentation of the current Coggins test during parade line up on July 4th in order to participate in the parade. All motorized vehicles must be driven by a licensed driver. Parade officials will ask to see proof of a valid driver license during the parade line up on July 4th.

The Celebrate Milton Committee is also looking for volunteers to help at the parade by lining up parade participants. If you are interested, please contact Inga Cushman at 868-6900 or by e-mail at icushman@milton-wi.gov.

For additional information about the parade contact City Administrator Jerry Schuetz at (608) 868-6900 or by e-mail at jschuetz@milton-wi.gov.
