4th of July Parade

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 norwoodchallengersports@gmail.com 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: richardson02062@gmail.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)
  • Bring sunscreen!!
  • 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.
