2020 RCOT Christmas Parade Logo Contest

The local Rotary International Clubs of Tyler is partnering with the Valerosa Designs & Gallery for the 2020 RCOT Christmas Parade Logo Contest. The logo contest starts today, Thursday, October 1.

We are looking for a logo that best represents this year’s parade theme, “Together, We are Rose City Strong”. The logo should also include the year and reflect this family-oriented, East Texas tradition.

The ROCT will feature the winning logo on all Christmas Parade promotional items, social media, and print materials. Submissions will be due on Wednesday, October 28, by 5 p.m. Entries will need to be submitted in a digital format or photo format and sent to RCOTChristmasParade@gmail.com.

All artwork must be original, absolutely no clipart or elements that look like clip art. The 2020 RCOT Christmas Parade logo selection committee encourages and will give special consideration to workable hand-drawn artwork. A maximum of four colors may be used in the design, this includes black and white. Lettering must be correct and easy to read.


2020 RCOT Christmas Parade Registration Now Open!!!

We are excited about this year’s new parade format and extended route. Entries will park along the inside lane of the parade route while attendees will have the option to drive in their vehicle or park and walk the parade route while maintaining social distance. Moving the Christmas Parade to Saturday, December 5, allows us to ensure families and attendees are safely adhering to social distance protocol, which would be much more difficult to monitor at night.

 Registration fees from September 14 to November 13:

  • $25 for all Commercial Entries. Commercial Entries include area businesses and all for-profit entities.
  • $15 for all Non-Commercial Entries. Non-Commercial Entries include marching bands, groups from schools, churches, scouts, civic/service clubs, and all other not-for-profit entities.
  • No Entry Fee for First Responders which include Law Enforcement, Fire, Ambulance, Military, and other similar agencies; and elected and appointed government officials.

Late Registration fees from November 14 to November 27:

  • $50 for all Commercial Entries. Commercial Entries include area businesses and all for-profit entities.
  • $30 for all Non-Commercial Entries. Non-Commercial Entries include marching bands(including school entries from the same school as their band), groups from schools, churches, scouts, civic/service clubs, and all other not-for-profit entities.

November 27, 2020 (or earlier if the limit has been reached) is the deadline for submitting applications.

Once 130 entries have been reached, registration will CLOSE. To register a parade entry or read the parade rules and regulations, visit Eventbrite.com or select the direct link here.

This year’s parade theme is “Together, We are Rose City Strong” and winners will be selected in six categories: Best Holiday Theme, Best Band, Most Interactive Entry, Spirit Award, Most Creative Entry, and Best Decorated Vehicle.

The Christmas Parade will be fun for the whole family and everyone is encouraged to attend this festive event! The parade is sponsored by the three Tyler Rotary International Clubs: South Tyler Rotary, Sunrise Rotary, and The Rotary Club of Tyler.

The Rotary Club of Tyler Welcomes You!

Sophie-Me2015-29616-

The Rotary Club of Tyler has a rich history. It was chartered on May 1, 1920. Many of the most influential persons in East  Texas history were members or officers of the Tyler Rotary Club.

Our club is composed of entrepreneurs, business leaders, civic leaders, and professionals from the fields of medicine, accounting, and the law, among others. We support a number of community and civic projects, as well as projects that bring needed medical attention to some of the most impoverished parts of the world.

If you are in business in Tyler, our club offers you an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals – persons who desire to operate their business affairs on the highest plane of ethics and integrity.

What would it take to change the world? Rotary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to “Service Above Self”.

You are welcome to join us for lunch, a good program, and warm fellowship to experience how our club is contributing to changing the world and those lives in our community, as well.

Thank you for your interest in the Rotary Club of Tyler.

Pamela Walters

President, 2020-2021
