Modesto July Parade Judging Criteria

During the parade, each entry will be judged on the entertainment value, creativity, how well the entry is showcased and relates to this year’s theme.

Everyone will be considered for the Chairman’s Trophy – the entry that best presents the combination of this year’s parade theme and the 4th of July theme. And every entry will also be considered for the Overall Theme Trophy – the entry that best presents this year’s parade theme.
