Bashaw Chamber seeks floats for Razzle Dazzle Day

It’s going to be a fun Razzle Dazzle Day and the more floats the better

The Bashaw and District Chamber of Commerce is looking for businesses to enter their floats into the Razzle Dazzle Parade.

This year’s big day is set for June 9 and the chamber is looking to make a big weekend of the day. In an email to members, the chamber is also looking to create a bang with fireworks.

It’ll be a double whammy of events for the weekend as it’s also grad weekend and the chamber wants to ensure a fun weekend.

There’s opportunities to donate money to help pay for the fireworks. The chamber states any amount to help pay for the $3,500 price tag will ensure things go well. To reach out to the chamber on fireworks or other Razzle Dazzle Day questions contact: Dustin, Cindy or Jamie or email the chamber at bashawcc@gmail.com.

Notes for the parade:

Parade Marshalling is at the Bashaw Arena parking lot area starting at 10 a.m. There will be a parade map there or just inside the Community Centre, where participants can find drinks and washrooms.

Check-in by 10:30 a.m. so organizers know the entries and all judging will be done by 10:45 a.m. Parade starts at 11 a.m.
