GUIDELINES

  • Start your creative engines and draw inspiration from all around you! Whether your float is a one-of-a-kind design or a replica of a float you remember previous IPL 500 Festival Parade, we can’t wait to see your creative vision.
  • While you can use remote control cars or other electronics to pull your float, or as the base of your float, the float itself should be fully decorated, in the spirit of the IPL 500 Festival Parade, using items from your home or yard.
  • Floats come in all shapes and sizes, but we want to make sure yours is big enough to see! Floats must be larger than 18 inches by 18 inches. Feel free to use bikes, cars, or other moveable electronics as the base of your float, but your added creativity must meet the size requirements.
  • Your submitted video must be shot horizontally and in a .MOV or .MP4 format with a length of no more than 90 seconds.
  • Complete the below submission form and upload your video file OR a link to a downloadable file.

Submission Deadline – 10 pm ET on Monday, May 25

The 500 Festival reserves the right to edit videos as needed. We also reserve the right to exclude any floats that do not meet our guidelines, that feature content not aligned with our mission or due to length limitations.

By submitting your video, you grant the 500 Festival permission to use your footage at their discretion on any platform.
