Richmond Hill’s Phagwah Parade, which commemorates the much anticipated Hindu Spring Festival of Holi, will take place this year on April 14. The Parade will end at the Phil Rizzuto Park (Smokey Oval) where there will be a cultural program showcasing the community’s talented artists.
However, as the cost of conducting the Parade continues to rise every year, we are forced to seek the help and support of the community in meeting these costs.
We wish to continue to maintain a well-organized and safe event, and so we cannot cut the basic costs which, include State certified security personnel, adequate supply of sanitary toilets, insurance, rental of equipment to conduct the cultural show, a mobile stage, chairs, tents, generators, bond etc., 
We also have to pay for using the Park, cleaning it and removing all garbage, and power washes the hard surfaces.
This year our expenses will run in excess of $50,000.00, and this is where we need your help.
As you know, the Phagwah Parade is a community cultural event which helps to propagate spiritual ideas of social healing, love, peace, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Indeed, Spring is a time of renewal and we encourage you to be part of these celebrations, by participating in the event, and also by helping to defray the cost by your kind monetary contribution.
We humbly ask that you please donate generously to the Parade Fund so that we can continue to present Richmond Hill’s premiere street Festival!
