WIDC Volunteer Brochure 2017

Are you interested in volunteering to help make the parade the largest in MA?  Volunteering to make the second largest Parade in New England happen, second only to Bristol, Rhode Island, is a year round effort.   The Parade Committee works together to raise money from local companies and individuals to cover the $80,000 cost to run the parade.  Volunteers recruit floats, solicit for donations and help with many other things during the year and on parade day.  When July 4th arrives, it is organized chaos but our hardworking group of volunteers bring yet another successful parade to Wakefield to thrill and entertain the entire community.

If you are interested in joining the committee please come to one of our scheduled meetings, or email info@julyparade.org
