Have you ever wanted to be IN the Dominion Energy Christmas Parade? This is your year! The Dominion Energy Christmas Parade is excited to kick off the first-ever Chick-fil-A Family Float Building Contest!
As we prepare for a virtual parade this year, we want to give families and kids an opportunity to actively participate in this year's parade experience! Build a miniature float and enter the contest for a chance to be featured in the Christmas Parade Special, airing on WTVR-CBS 6 on Saturday, December 5 at 10:00 am!
- Floats need to be a minimum of 12 inches long and 12 inches tall (there are no maximum dimensions!)
- Floats should have a Christmas or holiday component or theme (examples are Christmas characters, songs, television shows, movies, foods, decorations, or simply putting a Santa hat on your favorite doll or action figure!)
- Floats can be made from any materials!
- Floats can be standing still or moving.
- Each child in a family may submit their own design, or you may submit one entry for the entire family.
- Float entries must be submitted no later than 11:00pm EST on Wednesday, November 4.
*Note: Floats do not need to contain the Chick-fil-A logo. Santa Cow just made an appearance for promotional photos!
Once complete, please submit the following:
- Upload a 30-60 sec horizontal video, covering the highlights of the float, such as the theme, materials used, a close-up of the details, or anything else that you'd like to showcase. Acceptable video formats are MP4 and MOV. Videos must be uploaded to Dropbox by Wednesday, November 4 at 11:00pm EST. Label your video with your first and last name. (Example of a highlight video.)
- By submitting your photos and video, you agree to your images being featured on the 2020 Dominion Energy Christmas Parade television special, airing on WTVR-CBS 6 on Saturday, December 5, and Friday, December 25 as well as on social media channels. As many entries as possible will be featured on the broadcast!
- Three winners will be chosen to receive family prize packages from Chick-fil-A, redeemable at any location! Winners will be notified by Friday, December 4. (Prizes provided by Chick-fil-A Willow Lawn!)
This contest was inspired by the 2020 Rosebud Parade. For more ideas and to see examples from that parade, watch the Rosebud Parade here!
