Ways to Dance with Sound

Each year Dance Parade gathers 200+ organizations, 10,000+ dancers and 75 vehicles and floats.  We manage these logistics by offering the below sound and vehicle options. Though higher budget options provide the most comprehensive sound for your dancers, low budget scenarios are also available:

1. Cheapest Option - Many of our first time group participants choose to dance with the sound provided by another group.  Are you a salsa group? Then we'll have you dance behind another salsa group that is willing to share their sound!

2. Bring your own sound -- Having amplified sound outdoors is always challenging and can be expensive. We allow vehicles to transport up to 6 speakers (preferably 4)Up to 60 vehicles are permitted in the parade. Although there is an additional vehicle fee for gas powered vehicles, this may be a good option. Generator powered sound systems are the best. Generators require gasoline and can be rented from Home Depot for $75.

3. Rent a Sound-Pod from us -- we work with a sound company who provides a single SoundBoks speaker on a wheeled platform. that is known as the loudest wireless speaker in the world. $350 Limited Supply:

4. Get a Parade Float from us -- We work with the largest, most reliable float company in the Northeast to make your dreams come true! This is a turnkey approach and after submitting your designs, just show up on Parade Day and dance the day away. Feature up to 3 sponsors. Given enough time (prior to March 15), we will set up a GoFundMe fundraiser. Floats start at $3000 cost depending on size, design and audio options.
