The 35th annual Spirit of Beacon Day Parade will be on September 30th, 2012. This parade down Main Street is filled with hundreds of Beaconites, either marching or watching, but all celebrating our beautiful city and its singular spirit.
Come check out the marching bands, fire trucks, and representatives from local schools and organizations. After the parade visit the many booths from non-profit community organizations, sample some of the local fine food, and stick around for sing-a-longs, dance performances, and other entertainment.
