Ludlow Winter Carnival Seeks Paraders
The Ludlow Winter Carnival is looking for men, women and even children, teens, too (you can even bring your pets) to march in the Winter Carnival Parade on Feb. 6 at 6.30 p.m. and make some noise. Line up starts at 6 at the high school.
Bring your instrument, kazoo, pan and spoon, cow bell, jingle bells or screaming child--anything-- just as long as it makes noise. We want a whole contingent of noisemakers to march right down the center of Main St to celebrate winter.
You can walk on stilts and sing, ride a bike with a card clipped to the spokes-just as long as it makes noise.
Band members from the local schools, please come and help us out. Hot chocolate and marshmallow to follow the parade at Dorsey Park along with fireworks.
