It's the annual Bellevue Lighted Parade and we thought why not beef this year up again and create a little friendly competition. With that we partnered with the Bellevue, Iowa Area Chamber of Commerce to create Bellevue Lighted Parade Competition! Here is how it works. Create a float that incorporates lights. The more lights the better. After the fireworks, lineup your float at the post office parking lot. From there you will march your glorious float down Riverview pass the judges to the end of Jefferson St. After the parade is completed and the judges have tallied their votes we will announce live on Facebook the winners. Now there are 2 categories 1. Best Overall Float, winner gets $200 to donate to a local charity of their choice, and 2. Brightest Float gets $100 to donate to a local charity of their choice. If you already happen to be non-profit then go ahead and keep your winnings! So get those lights unknotted and creative juices flowing! We look forward to seeing all the floats!
