Since 1946. The first parade consisted of costumed marchers, a few floats, a couple of fire engines and a band. The parade has grown every year and has become one of the most cherished traditions in the community. The parade now boasts over 10 marching bands, 40 hand built floats and hundreds of costumed marchers. The parade has been a labor of love to many members of the Rotary Club over the years, some of which participated in the first. The parade is the single largest yearly undertaking by the club and serves as its biggest fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised from the parade go directly to the many community projects and scholarships sponsored by the Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club.
