The Homecoming celebration at Southlake Town Square on Wednesday, September 25, will provide students, businesses and the community an opportunity to showcase Dragon pride through a combined Carnival, Parade and Pep Rally. Depending on the level of involvement, there are several options for sponsoring this event.
For the Carnival booths that will be open from 4:30-6:30 p.m., official CISD student and parent organizations will be able to host a Carnival booth free of charge, but will need to provide their own tent, table and chairs. Businesses or individuals can sponsor a student organization booth or secure a booth of their own for $500. This package will include a 10 by 10 carnival booth tent, table, chairs and sponsor signage. Set-up for these booths will begin at 2 p.m. on Sept. 25.
The Parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will run through Town Square. Student organizations will be able to participate in the Parade at no cost. All other Parade Sponsorships will include a carnival booth sponsorship plus a corporate banner in front of a student float. Corporate Parade Sponsors will receive the basic package for $1,000. Automobile Sponsors will not only receive the basic package for $2,500, but their cars will also be used to drive the Homecoming Court, Teachers of the Year and other prominent Parade members. The Grand Marshal Sponsor will pay $5,000 for the right to feature their own float at the front of the parade. They will be the Title Parade Sponsor and their name will be advertised with the Parade information. Parade lineup will begin at 6 p.m. in the Barnes and Noble parking lot.
Immediately following the Parade, the Pep Rally will begin on the steps of Town Hall where sponsorships will be available for $1,500. This package will include the Carnival and Parade sponsorships as well as the opportunity to hand out novelty items at the Pep Rally. Any individual, business or organization who hands out any type of novelty item at the Parade or Pep Rally will be charged the $1,500 fee.
All Sponsorship applications will be due by 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 11. See flier below for clarification and direct additional questions to the Board and Community Relations Department at (817) 949-7080.
