Get your lawn chairs ready! Once again our parade will be rolling down High Street as we bring our 2021 Yankee Homecoming Festival to an end. We can’t wait to see you all lined up on High Street and don’t forget to cheer for our hard working volunteers who bring up the end of our parade. These volunteers are just a small handful who help put on our full 9 day festival.
The parade is the last official event of Yankee Homecoming. It begins at the intersection of Moseley Avenue and Ferry Road and follows historic High Street in Newburyport, ending State Street. Fire engines from the area will lead off the parade followed by the YHC General Chairman, Volunteers of the Year, bands, floats, performances and more! Once again we will be collecting money for the Jimmy Fund. Our parade (originally known as the Jimmy Day Parade) was the first fundraiser for the Jimmy Fund. Please help keep this tradition alive by donating during the parade.
We are still looking for more antique cars to participate in our parade. If you would like to show off your antique car/truck please complete the form below or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a great way to promote your business/organization. Remember there is no fee for floats that represent the Yankee Homecoming theme (Reimagined) and/or the organization is a not for profit. Groups are welcome to enter floats that represent a company we just ask that they adhere to the Advertisers fee.
Once again YHC is proud to partner with Pennies for Poverty which will be collecting your non-perishable food items along the parade route. These items will be delivered to our local food pantries.
