What’s a festival without a parade?
The annual Bluebonnet Festival Grand Parade takes place on Saturday and is one of the biggest and best parades in central Texas. Marching bands, antique cars, horses, fire trucks, special performing groups such as the Sunrise Beach Lawn Chair Brigade and Hill Country Plungettes will bring a smile to everyone’s face, from the very young to the young-at-heart.
Approximately 150 entries will line up for the hour-long parade and head downtown to the heart of the festival. After going around the square, the parade will head east on Jackson street, back to the staging area at Wallace Riddell Park. There is a $15 fee to enter the parade. Entry forms are available at the Burnet Chamber of Commerce, 101 N. Pierce St. or online here.
Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:
- Best Walking Group
- Best Equine Group
- Most Creative Float
- Best on Wheels
- Best Commercial Entry
- Best Overall Entry
- Best Bluebonnet Theme
