Community Interest

Sign up By May 1 to be Included in New Melle Parade Sponsor Advertising - New On-Line Sign Up Form

A group of community-minded individuals is working to reenergize the New Melle Festival Parade this year. Area businesses and organizations are invited to participate purely in the spirit of friendly competition and comradery, however, there are some additional incentives.

•    For a sponsorship donation of $50 or more (no float), businesses will be advertised all year long on a New Melle Festival Parade Sponsors Banner.
•    Businesses/organizations that enter a float and pay a $25 entry fee will also be advertised all year on the New Melle Festival Parade Sponsors Banner.
•    Free parade entries will also be accepted.
•    The parade will be held Saturday, June 16th at 11 a.m. 

Floats from non-profit organizations will compete against each other, winning the cash provided by the above sponsors and entree fees.

In the business category, the winning business/float will win advertising on a large banner at NMSR, free, for one year (a minimum $250 value) plus an ad on the NMSR website (a $500 value.)

Sponsor Banner Deadline: In order to be honored on the Sponsors Banner, NMSR will need your commitment, with payment, by May 1st, and logos by May 15th. Floats can be entered up until the week of the parade. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit for more information.
