It is parade volunteer sign up time! Be the first to register to get the area you enjoy the most. The parade is the evening of July 3. If you have volunteered in the past and want the same job in the same area, please let me know. Invite friends and family to join you. This is always a fun event for all. Here are the parade volunteer opportunities: Making cotton candy, parade line up, parade marshal, selling cotton candy and popcorn, and Bucket Brigade. Many members have already volunteered to help this year and I really appreciate that. It takes over 100 people to make this parade the great event that it is.

Please contact me via email, annfreudenthal@gmail.com or phone 414-881-6804.

 

The Optimist Club organizes and finances the Independence Day Parade which is always held on the evening of July 3rd at 7:00 pm. This extravagant parade, attended by over 25,000 viewers, costs the club approximately $20,000 to bring in marching bands and special parade groups and the club pays them anywhere from $100 – $3000 to participate in our parade.  The Optimist Club greatly appreciates all the financial support from our “Super Sponsors:” The Village of Menomonee Falls, Knights of Columbus, Malkins Carpeting, Cousins Subs, Rainbow Childcare and Harley Davidson—and any additional support from members of the community who generously give to the Bucket Brigade as they walk the parade route, grateful for any and all donations they receive.  The Club also devotes a lot of volunteer hours to making cotton candy and popcorn and selling both along the parade route to help finance the parade!!

The Independence Day Parade is the largest of the three parades held in Menomonee Falls. This parade is very well attended and precedes the annual fireworks display held at Menomonee Falls High School. The parade route starts on Appleton Avenue at Elm Lane and proceeds southeast to Woosencraft Drive, finishing on Titan Drive.

Independence Day Parade participants should submit their entry form at least 45 days prior to the date of the parade.
