PORT TOWNSEND — The application deadline for the Port Townsend Rhododendron Festival’s Grand Parade on May 17 has been extended to Monday.

Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. and can be dropped off at the scale house at the Port Townsend Paper Corp., 100 Mill Road, or faxed in care of Rita Hubbard to 360-379-2213.

As of today (Friday), 95 floats — eight from communities outside of Port Townsend — and 12 marching bands have signed up for the parade.

Commercial entries that represent a business or corporation, or any entry displaying or advertising a business or corporation name, and political candidates running for office this year will be required to pay an entry fee of $50.

There is no fee for community entries such as local groups, floats, school bands and drill or marching units that are not connected with a business.

The final lineup for the parade, which will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 17 in front of the Port Townsend Fire Station, will travel on Lawrence Street to Monroe Street, turn right and then turn right again on Water Street and Quincy Street.
