The North Carolina Azalea Festival Parade is an annual event that is viewed by over 100,000 people. Floats, marching units and bands, clowns and horses, all highlighted by visiting celebrities, Queen Azalea and her court, and the Azalea Festival Princess await you!
The parade just got even more interesting! We will now be having a “Best Entry” Contest! The winning entry will be determined by cateogries such as most creative, best executed, and most crowd pleasing entry. It will include all regular entries and floats, but does NOT include festival or parade sponsors, queens/kings, or the Band/JROTC units. The prize will be $500 cash as well as FOUR tickets to the Saturday night concert. The winner will be announced following the parade on our various social media sites. Click here to enter!
