The 2016 Fishtown Horribles Parade is in serious danger of not happening this year! Many of you around town gather on the 3rd of July along the 1.5 mile route that twist and turns through downtown Gloucester. You all enjoy this great event with friends and family. But most of you have no idea what it takes for this parade to be put on.
We are completely self funded only receiving police support from the city. The majority of our funding comes from the public the day of the parade. You all know the kids with buckets bothering you to dig deep and give, about half way through the parade, yeah that's where most of it comes from. Well due to a multitude of issues we have had to turn to alternative ways of coming up with the necessary funds to pay for it.
But how much can a parade cost? Well that's a great question. The official break down goes like this:
Bands 6-7 bands: $26,500
Parade Supplies: $2,068
(Trophies, Prizes, float decorations, food & water for volunteers etc...)
Parade Insurance: $630
Mailings: $400
(Donation letters for businesses local and corporate)
Permits: $25
Total: $29,623
So here I am asking you to dig deep and give. The day of the parade I ask for your change pennies, nickels, dimes I don't care we accept all legal US tender. Today I am asking for more. How much more? Well that is up to you. How much is it worth to you to make those memories that happen around the parade? Because it's not only about the parade but it's about the memories we create and the traditions we carry on. Thank for taking the time to read this and thank you for supporting the parade.
