Parade Committee Meeting Planned: Updated Location, Date & Time



Text Size

Residents are reminded that The Labor Day Parade Committee is seeking volunteers for this year’s parade, returning September 5 following a two-year hiatus.

Margot and Bob Hall will serve as grand marshals for the 60th offering of the end-of-summer tradition, which this year will have as its theme “Celebrating Newtown’s Hidden Gems.”

Parade Participant Chair & Lineup Coordinator Melissa Kopcik says there are several different ways to be part of the Newtown Labor Day Parade.

Marchers, bands, performers, vendors, et al, will all be needed come September 5. There are multiple planning and behind-the-scenes roles that also need to be filled.

“We are ready to hear from participants, volunteers, and potential sponsors,” the parade official recently told The Newtown Bee. “We have a strong committee thus far, which is super exciting.”

The parade committee’s next meeting is at 6 pm Wednesday, May 18, at Newtown Savings Bank, 39 Main Street.

Note this is a change of date, time, and location for the original plans, which had the committee meeting during the morning of Wednesday, May 25.

Anyone who would like to learn more about or join the committee is welcome to attend. Kopcik asks that those planning to attend reach out first.

“Due to space restrictions, we’d just like a heads-up,” she said.

Kopcik can be reached at 203-994-6435.

Anyone seeking additional information on participating and/or sponsoring the parade is encouraged to visit NewtownCTLaborDayParade.org.
