As always, the Town of Norwood has invited any and all Challenger participants to ride on a special float decorated just for us in their 4th of July parade!
Wednesday, July 4, 2018
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you will be participating in the parade!
Challenger director Sean Richardson will be our point man for this activity. Sean's contact info: email@example.com or 617-538-8258 Parade starts at 5:45 PM. Marchers need to be in place by 4:00 - 4:30 PM.
If you wish to participate, park your vehicle at the Shaws supermarket near Norwood Center.
Plan to get to Shaws about 3:30 - 4:00 PM
A shuttle bus will be running continuously taking parade participants back to the staging area (Coakley Middle School).
Take the shuttle bus to the Coakley school and look for Sean Richardson and other Challenger families at the entrance driveway near the gym (where we play basketball)
There will be bottles of water provided on the float
Challenger has a truck pulling a trailer, so participants and their families can ride and not have to walk.
There are very loud fire trucks in the parade - bring ear plugs for those who will be distressed!
Parade ends at Shaw's supermarket, so at the end you will be right back near your vehicle
If you will be dropping your child and not riding on the float, be sure to be back at Shaw's by 6:45 - 7:00 PM to pick up
Shaw's Supermarket - from Route 1: Take Nahatan St towards Norwood Center. Shaws will be 1/2 mile on your left, across from Fire Station.
