ABOUT THE PARADE
Nothing is sacred as Glocester locals spoof local and national politics during the famous Ancients and Horribles Parade on the Fourth of July. The parade first wound its way down Main Street in Chepachet in 1926 and, with the help of many dedicated volunteers, has continued to delight Glocester residents (and many others) each and every year since. Keep reading to learn more about the Ancients & Horribles Parade and how you can be a part of this tradition.
Established Town Council Meeting of April 17, 2003. Terms are ongoing. Committee Membership includes 9 voting members, 1 alternate voting member, and unlimited ad hoc non-voting members. The purpose of the Committee is to organize and oversee all Parade related activities (fireworks, fund-raising, grants, vendors, bands, etc.) while observing all Town Ordinances, policies and other guidelines as the Town Council deems necessary.
To be considered for awards, all parade participants must be registered.
Parade participants are requested to pre-register online. Participants may also register by mail or in person at the Town Hall.
