SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- The deadline is quickly approaching for individuals and groups that want to enter the "Twilight Parade" -- the annual kickoff to the Illinois State Fair.

The parade will step off at 6 p.m. on Aug. 8, but the deadline to apply for a space in the parade line is July 12.

Would-be revelers must complete an application that includes a description and drawing or photograph of the proposed entry. A committee will decide entrants based on entertainment value and use of this year's theme: "Where Illinois Comes Together."

Materials such as candy may not be thrown along the route. But up to eight people as part of an entry may walk along the crowd and hand things out.

Awards will be given for the most creative entries. For more information, visit www.illinoisstatefair.info
