92nd Annual Ancients & Horribles Parade
WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 2018
Nothing is sacred as Glocester locals spoof local and national politics during the famous Ancients & 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.
The Ancients & Horribles Parade Committee was established at the Glocester 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.
The Parade Committee meets Thursdays at 7:00pm at the Town Hall in April, May and June. Meetings are subject to change due to availability and/or quorum. Contact Town Clerk’s Office (401-568-6206, Ext. 0) or Secretary of State’s Office for actual meeting dates.
Volunteers and donations are always needed. Please contact Parade Chair Mike DeGrange at email@example.com and let him know how you can help!
