The entry fee is $150.00; however, you need a sponsor to apply.  The sponsors pay the entry fee.  Depending on the sponsor, they may also provide monies toward other expenses such as a dress for parade day and the crowning.  The sponsors also assist with the parade day vehicle/float.  If you are unable to find a sponsor, the Festival coordinator, Becca Heil, may be able to help you.  Her phone number is 314-837-0033.
