What expenses are associated with the annual holiday parade? Here is a partial list:
Marching bands (can range from $500 up to $2,000)
Entertainment (such as the Cycling Murrays)
Other expenses (banners, signage, improvements to one very special float, etc.)
The town, through a warrant article, gives $3,000 to the annual holiday parade. A smaller sized parade (one with only three bands) costs a minimum of $5,000. The community is the driving force to keeping this annual family tradition going. Thanks to the generosity of businesses, civic groups, nonprofits, and residents, the Exeter Holiday Parade has been around for more than 60 years. We need your help to keep it going for another 60. Thank you!
Thank you for your support.
100% of your donation directly offsets the costs of the general expenses for the parade.
