The theme for 2014 "Ensena la Cultura" will focus on the ways that we can educate ourselves about our culture, educate others about our culture, and educate our culture about important issues impacting our culture. All floats should focus on how we share our culture.
 
The CSF Fiesta Committee wants to continue our new tradition within the Fiesta Day Parade.  All entries are asked to decorate with live plants.  Any entry with live plants will receive bonus points towards awards.
 
Float Awards (given prior to start of parade):
Most Traditional, Judges' Choice, Most Creative, Best Fitting Parade Theme, Best Costumes
 
Parade Awards (announced at the Coke Stage during the Queen and Court performance):
School Spirit, Marching Unit, Saddle Club, Custom Vehicle, and Best Presentation by a Band
