FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
When sending my payment online it ask for “PayPal Email” and “Application Email” on the parade application, why do I need to give two emails?
The reason we ask for both “PayPal Email and “Application Email” is so we can properly connect the application to the right PayPal application fee payment. A common situation that comes up is the email address that is sent with the application and the email address used on PayPal to send the application fee are two different email addresses. We want to make sure to associate the correct application and application fee payment together so it is important we know which emails you are using at each step of the parade entry application process.
What should I do if I am trying to send my application using the Send Application Form but it is not working?
The Send Application Form will not allow a file to be sent under the following conditions:
- The form fields are not properly filled out on the Send Application Form.
- The file being uploaded is not a PDF (.pdf) file.
- In the name when an extra period (.) is used it causes an error, please do not use a period in the naming of your file.
- Correct Naming: application1.pdf

These rules for the Send Application Form are necessary for the committee to receive the proper information with each application and to have strong security on the website.
