Thanksgiving Shoebox Parade Entries Due

Event Type: Children's Program (Primary)
Age Group(s): Children, All ages
Date: 11/1/2019
Start Time: All Day
 Love watching the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade? Why not give float making a try! Create a float for the Library’s first ever Thanksgiving holiday shoebox parade and you could win a prize. We will provide you with an empty shoebox for the base of your float and you provide a few things from around your house, and your imagination!

Your float can show off people, characters, animals, or a cool winter scene (we’d love it even more if your float was based on a book). You can use any materials you like--toys, action figures, glitter, paper, paint, and more to decorate your float (please no feathers!).

Bring your awesome float to the library as soon as it's done so we can put it on display. All floats must be at the library by 9:00 p.m. on Monday, November 25.

Floats will be judged by Library Staff in four categories: ages 3-5, ages 6-8, ages 9-11 and Families. Prizes will be given for the winner of each group. For the non-family categories please make sure the float is the creation of the child themselves.

Winners will be announced on Friday, November 29, and floats can be picked up starting Sunday, December 9 so all get a chance to see the parade!
