  • The deadline for the Mayor’s race is Saturday, November 30. The money is counted at the ‘headquarters’ of the previous year’s winner, or at the location of their choice.
  • On the day of the count, we do not accept cash, only money orders or checks will be accepted.
  • Once we start the count, no other donations can be made on behalf of any candidate.

Best Crowd Contest

Think you’re the Best Crowd at the Parade? Maybe we’ll think so too!

‘Crowds’ will be judged on four criteria:

  • Parade Spirit
  • Enthusiasm
  • Best Use of the color Green
  • Promoting the family atmosphere of the parade

Pre-registration by March 10, using this form or via our website, is highly recommended. Pre-registered ‘Crowds’ are asked to identify where they will be located on the parade route to assist judges. Additionally, pre-registered participants may submit information about what makes them the ‘Best Crowd.’

Prizes will be awarded in two different categories:

  • Best Crowd – Business
  • Best Crowd – Non-Business

Winners will receive an outdoor banner displaying “Best Crowd 2020 – Worcester County St. Patrick’s Parade” and a trophy to be presented at the Parade’s annual Awards Breakfast in the fall. Winners will also receive two complimentary tickets to the Awards Breakfast.
