Columbus Day Weekend

October 13, 2013

In friendly Orange, Ma.

2013 theme: "Make Your Own Theme"

This year’s Parade is already shaping up to be a huge event. Your

organization or business can be a part of the Parade even without a float.

You may opt to just march or have some form of equipment or banner for your group announcing who you are.

The parade route this year will start at Pete’s Tire Barn on East Main Street and ends at Butterfield Park on East River Street. The total length is just over a mile. In an effort to keep things as organized as possible we are asking participants to fill out the registration form and return to:

Ken Reynolds

38 Prospect Street

Orange, MA 01364

978-544-3042 – Home. / 978-895-5060 – Cell.


Parade steps off at 1:00 p.m. sharp with the 1st division forming at Pete's Tire Barn.


Parade route goes west bound on East Main Street to center of Orange (1st set of lights), taking a left onto South Main Street, down Hayden St. to the Town Park.


9 Divisions, each headed by a local area High School band, followed by floats from local groups and organizations; classic and antique cars from the car show; ending with emergency vehicles, fire trucks and police cars.
