To qualify for the grand prizes, participants must answer some questions, and show off and share a video of their end-zone celebratory dance on social media using the #GitiTireRoseParade hashtag.

"This event continues to be a great way for us to introduce the Giti name to American consumers, especially as our plant in South Carolina ramps up production for the North American market,” said Tim Fulton, CEO of Giti Tire North America. "Our booth this year should create a lot of excitement and social media buzz. We’re particularly looking forward to our end zone dance competition."
