Rockland's Lobster Festival Parade:
Saturday, August 3rd.
We'll be there, along with Gubernatorial candidate Steve Woods, Congressman Mike Michaud, several of our Democratic state legislators, and most importantly, YOU!
Bring family, friends and house guests to gather at 8:00 a.m. for a 10:00 parade start, at Oceanside High School, 400 Broadway. Look for the big blue "KNOX COUNTY DEMOCRATS" banner. We have red-white-and-blue visors, flags to wave, and a few signs to carry, or bring your own sign (positive comments only, please). Plenty of parking in the school lot. North Main Street and Broadway will be closed to traffic on Saturday morning, so enter the school grounds from Cedar Street, off Old County Road (the 1st left off Old County Road if you are coming from Rt. 17, or the last right before Rt. 17 if you are coming from the south.)
The parade route is down North Main Street and through downtown Rockland on Main Street,
finishing near the Lobster Festival entrance, whence you can take the shuttle bus (starting at noon) back to the school.
We have folks who would join but can't walk the distance. If you have a convertible car or a pickup with seats in the bed, or questions about the parade, call Adrian at 763-4691 or email. The festival website is here.
No band or semi-trailer for us this year, so let's impress the cheering crowds with a big people turnout!
