MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The City of Stillwater is taking a controversial stance on who they want in parades.

The city has upped its entry fee to $1,000 for politicians wanting to walk in this weekend’s Log Jam Parade, according to reports.

Officials said they hope the hefty amount will keep politics out of family fun.

The Minnesota Democratic Party reportedly pulled its resources to pay for six candidates to be in Sunday’s parade.

The state Republican Party has declined to participate.
