Holiday Light Fight

May 21st, 2022

Registration at 9am

Kick Stands Up at 10am!

The 8th Annual Patriot Ride is hosted by the Pepperell 4th of July Committee and if needed, will be a socially distance bike run. 

In 2020-2021 this was an abbreviated ride, no bands, no raffles, thus giving everyone a chance to do what they love to do, riding for a cause. 2022 details TBD.

Please note: The VFW is our partner and host location.
About the Patriot Ride: 

The starting point is at the Pepperell VFW Post 3291 and the ride will run about 2 hours with a pit stop at Kimball's Farm in Jaffrey, NH. Donations for the ride are $20.00 per Rider and $10.00 per Passenger. T-shirts available by pre-order.

This ride helps support the Pepperell 4th of July Committee events and fundraisers that are run throughout the year. All donations go towards Pepperell 4th of July celebration planning, and includes special fundraising events run 100% by volunteers, all designed to bring the community together and  to bring you the best Parade & Fireworks in the area!  We could not do it without your help.


June 25th, 2022
is now a GO

Parade & Fireworks

Finally! We are thrilled to move forward with this year's Parade (10am) and Fireworks (6-10pm) event on 6/25!! 

Last year we had to work at lightning speed to pull this event together, and it was amazing!! We hope 2022 will be even bigger and allow community members and floats to join in on the fun!! We are working to secure entertainers already, so if you're interested in participating in 2022, please reach out!! If you're asking "Why June 25th?" It's simply because we find it works best to kick of the season early, and allows more flexibility in working with our vendors, entertainers and community volunteers!! 

If you would like to sign up to march in the parade, volunteer or to make a donation, please see the buttons below. The deadline to sign up for the parade is 6/18.

We will be hosting a float contest this year.

The parade will run from the Pepperell Town Hall down Maine Street, ending at Kemps.

The evening FIREWORKS celebration is hosted on the back field behind Varnum Brook Elementary School. Lots of food vendors, games and music will be available from 6pm to dusk, with fireworks at dusk.


Want to get involved? We're always looking for volunteers to help with this year's planning. And the weekend of the event, we typically need help with:

  • Friday night at 5pm to prep the field

  • Saturday with parade lineup 8:30am-10am

  • Volunteers to carry parade sponsorship banners

  • Sunday clean up

So please reach out if you'd like to get involved or to make a general donation.


​Until then be safe and wear your mask! We will follow current Mass and BOH guidelines as needed.
