Parade Information

We would like to invite you to participate in the 2024, 92nd Annual Lindsay Orange Blossom Festival Parade. Our theme this year is "Citrus Crossroads." This theme celebrates the connection between oranges and sister cities to represent the idea that oranges serve as a common ground, bringing together different cultures and communities. There is no entry fee to participate in the parade so gather your friends, church group, family, school club, or organization and join us! Help us to continue the City of Lindsay's legacy of delicious, world famous oranges!

Download an application below. Return the application, along with a short description of your entry, which will be read by the announcer as you pass by the judging table. Feel free to be creative in your narrative. The deadline for the application and announcer's sheet is March 29, 2024.

We hope that you choose to participate so we can make this the best parade yet! If you have any questions please contact Megan Hernandez (559) 853-8716 or email
