2007 Old Fashioned 4th of July Parade in Chesterfield
with Quilts, Antique Cars & Horse Drawn Buggies
This year will mark the 60th annual 4th of July Parade in Chesterfield! To recognize this milestone, this year’s parade will reflect the theme of “An Old Fashioned 4th.”
In addition to including antique cars as has often been done, the planning committee is asking area residents with horses and wagons (or buggies) to join the celebration of our nation’s history by participating in the parade. Questions can be directed to Carol Jolly at 413-296-4254.
The Parade Committee will be holding a quilt display at the Chesterfield Congregational Church during the Independence Day celebration. We are looking for quilts to exhibit and welcome both vintage and new quilts, whether made by the exhibitor or someone else. We will be awarding cash prizes of $100, $50, and $25 to those chosen as “best in show” by attendees and Honorable Mention ribbons to those selected by town boards.
Quilts must be received by noon on June 30th to be included. For additional information or to receive an entry form, please contact Denise LeDuc at 413-296-4312 or .
