Marlborough officials announce Labor Day Parade details

Marlborough – This year the 61st annual city of Marlborough Labor Day Parade will start at noon Monday, Sept. 3, and follow its traditional parade route. This year’s theme is “Volunteers in Service,” which pays homage to all the volunteer men, women and organizations of Marlborough and beyond who dedicate their time, money, energy and, in some cases, their lives to the well-being and safety of all. The Mayor’s Office is asking that all entries in the parade incorporate this in the theme of their entries and floats.

Performing units and individuals of all types are invited to apply for entry into the parade.  Application forms are available at the office of the city’s recreation director, at 239 Concord Road, and at the city of Marlborough homepage (www.marlborough-ma.gov).  It is important that forms be completed fully and legibly, and include a biography, organization summary or informational piece about the applicants. An alternate telephone number for use during evening or weekend hours must be included.

All applicants will be considered based upon assessment of quality, the nature of performance offered, consistency with parade theme and specific needs, and budgetary limitations. With a well-established reputation for excellence, this parade is one of New England’s premier events, attracting large crowds and media attention. It is an annual event and participants often return for repeat performances. Parade organizers would appreciate each applicant’s most favorable performance fee.

For more information, contact Parade Director Ed Thurber at 508-485-4599 or ed.thurber@gmail.com.
