Chesterfield’s 62nd Annual Independence Day Parade
Nicolas Frischer of Chesterfield, MA writes:
“Let Freedom Ring” will be the theme of this year’s July 4th parade and promises all the fun and family attractions that have made this event a Hill town tradition since 1947.
The parade which starts at 10:30am will feature marching bands, floats, animals, clowns, fire and emergency equipment and as always, one of the best displays of antique and classic automobiles.
Activities in town center will begin at 7am and run until 3pm include:
- Pancake Breakfast
- Food & Vendor Booths
- Quilt Display
- Historic Exhibits
- Heritage Pops Orchestra
- Chicken Barbecue
- Kids Fun
- Face Painting
- Petting Zoo
- Fireman’s Competitions
- Family Softball
The parking field is on-site at Bryant Street and there will be ten comfort stations conveniently located around town.
Invitations remain open for any group, organization, or attraction that would like to enter a float, march or enjoy participating.
Any small donations from individuals or sponsorship contribution and recognition from area businesses would be genuinely appreciated to help offset significant reductions in State and Cultural Arts funds received in the past.
