Bangor Announces Date And Theme of 2023 Festival Of Lights Parade
The Rotary Club of Bangor has announced the date and theme of this year's "Festival of Lights" parade.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 2nd.
The parade will kick off at 4:30 PM and will feature the theme "Create Hope in the World."
Organizers suggest that those who are interested in taking part in this year's parade should start thinking of ideas now.
"The parade can accommodate approximately 80 glittering units: marching bands, small and large floats, dancers, and other performing groups. Groups may represent traditional scenes celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, New Year’s, Solstice, Kwanzaa, or any winter happening. "
Those in charge of this year's parade hope that the event draws people all over to the Bangor region to enjoy all of the things the City has to offer.
“It’s heartwarming to see the community come together each December and share in this wonderful event,” says Parade Chair Roland Narofsky. “Our hope is that families will come from across the region to enjoy everything downtown Bangor has to offer, including the official lighting of the holiday tree in West Market Square immediately following the parade.”
If you or your organization have an interest in joining in the fun, the folks from the Rotary Club of Bangor want to hear from you!
"Anyone wishing to take part in this year’s Festival of Lights parade is welcome to contact Roland Narofsky at 207.862.7259 or email@example.com no later than Friday, November 24, 2023."
