The City of Chicopee started the Patriotic Parade in 2022 as a way to celebrate and show their patriotism for all of the patriotic holidays throughout the year! The parade prefaces the Fourth of July Fireworks that the city holds annually at Szot Park.
The Chicopee Patriotic Parade Committee is currently accepting applications for organizations to participate in this year's parade. Below are the documents that need to be completed and returned to our office before the deadline of Wednesday, June 1st. Applications can be emailed to Amber Roy at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the City of Chicopee Department of Veterans Services at 36 Center Street, Chicopee, MA 01013.
The parade will assemble at the American Legion Post 452 located at 37 Exchange Street. The parade will kick off at 3:00PM and march down Exchange Street left onto Center Street and will then proceed around City Hall and up Front Street and end near the entrance of Szot Park.
