Participation in the Parade

We invite organizations, individuals and families to the streets of downtown Lowell to celebrate the greening of our city with a mile-long parade featuring marching bands, puppets, costumes, and eco-conscious groups. 

If you or your organization would like to march in the parade, please fill out this form. 

Participation in the Festival

Immediately following the parade, we’ll be holding a fun sustainability festival for all participants and the general public. Reserving a spot in the festival gives you a chance to showcase your organization and connect with audience members in creative ways. To get you thinking, in the past we have seen organizations do some of the following:

·  play a toss game with recyclable materials for prizes

·  give away items made from recyclable goods

·  pass out pamphlets about their organizations and have a sign up sheet to learn more     about the organization

This is a great opportunity for you and your organizations. Please sign up by April 7th by filling out this form if you’d like to reserve a table. 

For further questions, you can contact Tyler Arrigo.
