Banish all thoughts of wintry winds and icy rain. Instead, think red, white and blue! The deadline is quickly approaching for anyone interested in submitting 4th of July parade themes to the Chatham Independence Day Parade Committee.
The Lower Cape's 4th of July parade is a highlight of the summer and you have the opportunity to choose the theme. The 2014 theme was "Surf, Sand & the Deep Blue Sea".
According to the parade committee, now in its 108th year, the annual Chatham 4th of July parade attracts more than 20,000 spectators.
Your submission must include your contact information (name, phone and email), your idea and the inspiration behind your idea.
The deadline for theme ideas is Saturday, December 20. Ideas may be emailed to the committee, mailed to Town of Chatham, Attn: Chatham Independence Day Parade Committee, 549 Main Street, Chatham, MA 02633 or dropped in the suggestion box at the Chatham Town Hall. Submission forms are available here.
