Nothing is sacred...

93rd Annual Ancients & Horribles Parade


Thursday, July  4th at 4pm - Nothing is sacred as Glocester locals spoof local and national politics during the famous Ancients & Horribles Parade on the Fourth of July. The parade first wound its way down Main Street in Chepachet in 1926 and, with the help of many dedicated volunteers, has continued to delight Glocester residents (and many others) each and every year since.

The Ancients & Horribles Parade Committee was established at the Glocester Town Council Meeting of April 17, 2003. Terms are ongoing. Committee Membership includes 9 voting members, 1 alternate voting  member, and unlimited ad hoc non-voting members. The purpose of the Committee is to organize and oversee all Parade related activities (fireworks, fund raising, grants, vendors, bands, etc.) while observing all Town Ordinances, policies and other guidelines as the Town Council deems necessary.

The 4th begins at 9am with a road race; 3pm is parade judging and then the parade steps off at 4pm…  For more info:  www.ancientsandhorribles.org.
