No power will be provided. The parade will have only ONE Santa, provided by; “THE CONGRESS FIRE DEPARTMENT” he will be in communication with the North Pole during the entire month of December. Entries cannot throw candy or other items during the parade from their float or vehicles, but may have people walking on both sides handing out candy. Tips for lighting your Parade Entry: Lighting can be achieved in several fairly simple ways: 1. Portable gasoline powered generations. This is a simple way to provide lighting with out complicated wiring. You can use regular Christmas lights designed for house current. 2. Inverters: an inverter is a device that converts 12 volts DC current to 110 volt AC (household current). This device can be easily connected to the vehicle's cigarette lighter or directly to the electrical system. Another option would be to carry a regular 12-volt power source (an auto battery for example) directly on your entry. Inverters are available locally at Radio Shack as well as most auto parts stores. You will need to match the capacity of the inverter to the total wattage needed to operate the lights on your entry. 3. Standard battery operated devices. MORE LIGHTS BRING SMILES & CHEERS!
