CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JUNE 7-13, 2018 CUMBERLAND / LINCOLN 5 Plans underway for 92 annual Arnold Mills July 4th Parade CUMBERLAND – Organizers of the Arnold Mills July 4th Parade are getting ready to greet thousands of parade-goers, who traditionally line both sides of Nate Whipple Highway (Rte. 120), as plans gear up for the 92nd annual event on July 4. This year's theme is "Celebrating Our Heritage." The four-division parade will kick off at 11 a.m. with fire trucks, military troops, antique and custom cars, bands, clowns, patriotic walkers, floats and Rhode Island's Dancing Cop, Tony Lepore. The creativity of neighbors from Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts will be on display, as organizations and businesses are encouraged to enter a float or find another creative way to participate. There is no charge to enter a float, car, truck, bicycle, wagon, or any- thing else, as long as it is family acceptable. Before the parade, the annual 4-mile road race will begin at 9 a.m. from the starting line at the North Cumberland Fire Station on Nate Whipple Highway. Over rolling country roads, mostly flat, this race is one of the oldest in New England. The top three finishers will get tro- phies and a prize raffle will follow. Categories include juniors under 15 through 60 and older. For road race information, call Tom Kenwood at 401-658-0831. After the parade, there will be a Concert On The Green at 1 p.m. in front of the Arnold Mills United Methodist Church on Nate Whipple Highway, where the public is invited to relax to the sounds of the Night Life Orchestra. Organizations and businesses are encouraged to enter a float, car, truck, bicycle or wagon, or what- ever they might want as long as it is family-appropriate. Ideas should be geared toward the parade's theme. To make a donation, and for forms and further information, visit www.arnoldmillsparade.com or the parade Facebook page.
