1. Theme Compliance:
All floats participating in the parade must reflect the theme "Lead with Love." This theme promotes inclusivity, acceptance, and the celebration of diversity within the LGBTQ+ community and beyond.

2. Decorations and Signage:
Floats should be adorned with decorations, signage, and visual elements that embody the spirit of love, acceptance, and unity. This may include rainbow colors, hearts, messages of love and equality, and symbols representing various identities within the LGBTQ+ community.

3. Respectful Representation:
Floats must portray imagery, messages, and representations that are respectful and uplifting to all individuals, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, or any other characteristic. Offensive or discriminatory content will not be permitted.

4. Inclusive Messaging:
All signage, banners, and messages displayed on floats should promote inclusivity, respect, and understanding. Messages should aim to inspire love, support, and empowerment for all members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies.

5. Safety Measures:
Floats must adhere to all safety regulations set forth by the parade organizers. This includes ensuring that all participants are securely positioned on the float, that there are no loose objects that could pose a safety hazard, and that there are appropriate safety measures in place for any performance or activity taking place on the float.

6. Sound and Music:
Floats utilizing sound systems or music must keep the volume at a reasonable level to avoid disruption or discomfort to spectators and other parade participants. Additionally, music should be chosen to align with the theme of “Lead with Love”; and should be inclusive of diverse musical genres and artists.

Participants must comply with any instructions or directives given by parade officials or staff. This includes following the designated parade route, adhering to scheduled start times, and cooperating with any safety or logistical requirements.

9. Non-Commercialization:
While corporate sponsorship is permitted, floats should prioritize the celebration of pride and the theme of “Lead with Love” over commercial promotion. We ask that branding or promotional material to be representative of the overall message of inclusivity and acceptance.

10. Code of Conduct:
All participants, including float organizers, performers, and riders, are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that upholds the values of respect, kindness, and love. Any behavior deemed disrespectful, disruptive, or contrary to the spirit of the parade will not be tolerated.

All floats must receive final approval from the parade organizers before participating in the event. This may include a review of decorations, signage, and other elements to ensure compliance with the parade regulations and theme.

12. Enforcement:
Parade officials reserve the right to remove any float or participant that fails to comply with these regulations or engages in behavior deemed inappropriate or harmful to others. Let’s lead with love and make this parade a celebration of unity, diversity, and acceptance for all!
