The colorful and politically decorated parade floats are a supporting element of every hemp parade that can hardly be underestimated. They are sent into the race by legalization activists, clubs, labels, parties or party organizers and contribute significantly to the success of Germany’s largest legalization demonstration.
This year there is no fixed concept for the design of the floats – but we have some requirements that must be met in any case: A creative float decoration with a clearly recognizable political statement on hemp legalization, and a maximum of 30% of the banner area may be occupied by advertising.
We have to use the money raised by the staggered participation fees for the GEMA bill on the one hand, and on the other hand to help those projects that have not been able to realize their own floats so far (because they lacked the necessary small change).
In this way, we want to give associations and newly founded activist collectives active in the field of legalization the chance to present themselves to a larger audience at the Hanfparade.
Parade floats may of course be designed collectively by several organizations, persons, etc.; this may also be expressed!
