Ok... you made this
"Yard Decorating Contest" fun!
We brought the parade to you
Entry Deadline on September 26, 2020 has passed.
The Santa Clara Parade of Champions has always been a celebration of people, non-profits, businesses, organizations, and traditions; bridging communities in Santa Clara and beyond. We are asking members of the community to celebrate with us by decorating their businesses, organizations, homes or whole neighborhoods.
Don’t have a yard? No? Decorate your porch, a window, a doorway or something else visible from the street or sidewalk.
Show off your community spirit with the best creative display; or salute our first responders and essential workers as inspiration; or go wild with your own ideas incorporating our 2020 Parade theme: America's Heroes. The purpose of decorating is to unleash your creativity and bring a smile to your friends and neighbors and anyone that drives by.
The Santa Clara Parade of Champions Committee will provide you with a lawn sign with your assigned # so folks know how to VOTE for your home, we will produce a virtual map with the locations of all our registered yards, so folks can plan a walk, bike or drive around the various neighborhoods and businesses to site see, vote and share the celebration via social media. There are 5 categories you can win in, and one of them is People's Choice. Tell your friends and share on Social Media to help increase your chances of winning--its a fun and friendly competition!
We invite all of Santa Clara to participate.
