July 4 Activites: Horribles Parade

The 140th Annual Horrible’s Parade will return to Point Shirley on Sunday, July 3 after a two year absence due to the pandemic.

The Parade kicks off from the Public Landing at 9 am with registration starting at 7:30 am and the route ending at Coughlin Park.  A number of free festivities after the Parade are planned at Coughlin Park  that will include the Parade Award Ceremony, races, blueberry pie eating contest and a DJ to spin those tunes.

Some of the categories that parade contestants can enter include Best Float, Most Hilarious, Most Horrible, Most Patriotic, Most Original and with beauty being in the eye of the beholder, The Most Beautiful.

The Committee for the Horrible’s Parade includes Wendy Millar Page, Peter and Sharon Gobiel and Dr. Paul McGee.  Donations are still being accepted to support the Parade.

So with no rain in the forecast, don those costumes for Sunday and create memories that will last for many years. As members of the committee remind residents, “let’s celebrate the 140th Anniversary of our treasured hometown tradition and our Independence Day together!”
