A parade only happens if there are festivals, fiestas, competitions or any important occasions to celebrate. Mostly, the parade is done by students, organizations, and other groups of people. And mostly, a grand parade is participated with many people not to mention the numerous people watching the parade. However, under circumstances, the parade is not safe from any kinds of risks. Parade risks require careful pre-planning, event coordination and contractual risk transfer. Small cities and towns should be in control with planning the parade routes and training any volunteers working at the event. Festivities also entail the active involvement of contractors, vendors and concessionaires. Some organizers cannot prevent dangers involving in parade and that is why they aid themselves from any liability through the help of a parade waiver. The parade waiver holds the participants as the sole liability as he agrees to enter the parade. Upon signing the said parade waiver, he agrees the fact that risks are everywhere.
Parade Waiver is a solution for some organizers of the parade. Parade waiver best suits especially if organizers have lack of funding and exempt liabilities in their expenses. Your only console is that all the participants are ready to face the risks and agrees to take the responsibility in all the medical expenses on whatever bad they encounter. In signing the parade waiver, the undersigned is aware of and understands the inherent risks, hazards and dangers associated with parade participation and, notwithstanding that the actual conditions at the Parade may pose more or less risks, hazards and dangers than those so enumerated, the undersigned nevertheless elects, voluntarily, to enter and/or participate in the Parade on the terms, conditions and covenants set forth herein. And also, this parade waiver can become effective if upon the participation of a participant, he is having a serious health conditions without the knowing of the organizers. And that kind of situation, that participant will be exempt from the parade so that he can be free from risks in favor of the organizers and he won’t need to sign any parade waiver.
Another risks that can be stated in the parade waiver is the involvement and inherent risks, hazards and conditions that may be dangerous to life, limb and property and that can arise in an incalculable variety of unforeseeable or foreseeable ways which may include (as examples, but not necessarily as a complete list) the following: The presence and use of horses and other animals, motor vehicles, machinery, firearms, floats, fireworks, acrobats, projectiles, aerial demonstrations, baton twirling, wind, rain, hail and other forces of the elements, and other threats to life and limb, such as the possibility of slipping and falling and complications associated with weather conditions and physical exertion (such as heat stroke, fainting, collapse, exhaustion or other more serious complications.
The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing of the Parade Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
