The Novant Health Thanksgiving Eve Parade, a privately-sponsored event, invites participants based exclusively on their ability to provide appropriate family entertainment suitable for this cherished national holiday. While the parade respects and embraces the diversity of causes in our community, state and nation, it cannot be used to promote special interests, no matter how worthy.

The Novant Health Thanksgiving Eve Parade organizers will not consider incomplete applications and reserve the right to make all determinations related to participation in the parade on the basis of entertainment value. By submitting an application, prospective participants accept this participation policy.
