The Feast of the Blessed Sacrament will host it's annual parade on
Sunday, August 5th, 2012 in the City of New Bedford.
The parade will start at 2:00 p.m.
with over forty different organizations marching the one mile route from Brooklawn Park to the Feast grounds at Madeira Field.
In the past we've had brass bands, fife & drum bands,
bagpipers, popular singing groups, pirates, clowns, jugglers, militias, beauty queens,
delightful floats, classic cars and lots of fun and surprises for everyone and rain... :-)
The parade begins at Brooklawn Park and proceeds south on Acushnet Avenue to Earle Street, turns east onto Earle Street and continues to the Immaculate Conception Church.
It then turns north onto Madeira Avenue and proceeds to Madeira Field
where it enters the Feast grounds and past the reviewing stand at Stage 1.
