Fort Worth Parade of Lights
Time & Location
About the Event
Our Club has submitted a car club entry into this large parade. We are allowed up to six Jaguars of any model. Due to the large parade entry fee ($175) we are asking parade participants to pay $30 each to recover the cost. Participation is limited to the first six club members that notify Clark of their interest and pay the $30 fee (make checks out to Clark Kirby). Email Clark for mailing address or see him at the next club meeting or other event.
DEADLINE for submitting your car: Friday Sept. 20, 2019
The biggest change from other parades that we have entered is that this parade requires that EACH of our cars be decorated with at least 1,500 tiny lights. Remember, this is a PARADE OF LIGHTS! Many retailers sell tiny LED lights on thin wires run by AA batteries that work perfectly and are best used to highlight the delightful curves of Jaguar bodies. For more information on lighting up your car, contact parade coordinator, Clark: firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: although our club application has been submitted, our entry has not yet been accepted. If our entry is not accepted, all money collected will be 100% reimbursed and this event announcement will be deleted. The parade committee will notify the club's event coordinator on October 13th. Stay tuned!
