We are no longer accepting entries for 2017 BOO! Parade!
We welcome all types of parade entries, from home-made community entries to commercial crafted professional floats. In the past, the over 15,000 parade attendees have enjoyed such entries as vintage car clubs, prancing horses, and dancing school corpses. We also have heard great praise for the entries from San Diego State University campus organizations, and local high school marching bands. Come as one, come as a group, or come as a team. Participating in The Boulevard BOO! Parade will be such a scream! Show your community pride, by signing on now for a fun-filled ride.
