WHO IS KING WILLIAM?
The King William Fair parade team has concepted the story/theme for the 2019 King William Fair opening parade! This year’s theme is to enlighten our audience on the age-old question asked by the tourists who visit our neighborhood “Who Is King William?”
King William may be named in honor of Kaiser Wilhelm of Prussia. However, there is a long history before and after that period belonging to this area.
We would love to have everyone apply to be an official parade entry. When deciding on your story for the parade, think of the many ways this area developed over time, as far back as the 1700s.
We ask applicants to choose a time frame between 1700, now and the future. Not having a solid plan for your parade’s theme is fine, as long as you are inspired by the era. Our chief wrangler will help you pick a story for your time era. If your entry is considered, someone from the parade committee will contact you to discuss your ideas. Acceptances will be sent no later than February 28, 2019.
When you apply please be specific when describing the story you plan to tell and how it will excite parade viewers. The more exciting your idea and your ability to enhance the theme’s story, the better chance you have being selected.
If you’re an artist and would like to participate, please email our chief parade wrangler at firstname.lastname@example.org. . We are looking for artists in the form of sculptors, painters, actors and musicians who to would like to help enhance our participants’ entries.
