The Stand & Show opportunity is open to four groups that will be given the spotlight in the Niagara Wine Festival Grande Parade. The four selected groups will be invited to present a “Stand & Show” feature during the Grande Parade on September 28th, 2013. ONLY those invited to perform a “Stand & Show” will be permitted to stop during the Parade. The opportunity to be chosen as one of the select groups is open to all groups including dance schools, cheerleading groups, precision teams, bands or a talented group of individuals that got together especially for Niagara’s largest parade. The Stand & Show performers will stop along the parade route at designated locations and the Parade Audience will be invited to vote online for their favourite performer. The Grande Parade Crowd Favourite will be announced and presented with their award once the voting closes at midnight, September 29, 2013.
Please submit a 60 second video/YouTube clip to the Niagara Grape & Wine Festivals’ Parade Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org showing them how your group plans to celebrate any or all of this year’s themes, as well as a brief description (250 words) outlining your artistic message. Only those selected for participation will be contacted for performance. We are not looking for a finished product, complete with costumes etc., but a concept that demonstrates your potential to WOW THE CROWD! This will undoubtedly be the biggest audience you have ever performed for.
To be eligible your group must have an identifiable artistic presentation and coordinate a thematic message that fits with any of the three 2013 Grande Parade Themes:
Honouring Our Heroes, Then & Now
The Niagara Region
Grapes and/or Wine and Wine Culture
