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 1, 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 2018 – 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.
