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 6/26!!
We are working at lightning speed to pull this event together. We realize there will be limited community groups able to jump in on such short notice, but we do have lots of entertainers ready to jump in!! If you're asking "Why June 26th?" It's simply because we have to work around vendor and entertainers availability!!
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. There will be no 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 from 6pm to dusk, with fireworks at dusk.
Want to get involved? We're looking for volunteers to help that weekend.
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.

The 7th Annual Patriot Ride is hosted by the Pepperell 4th of July Committee and will be a socially distance bike run.
This is an abbreviated ride, no bands, no raffles, thus giving everyone a chance to do what they love to do, riding for a cause.
Please note: The VFW is closed!! We are just lining up in the parking lot and will enforce social distancing and masks. Waiver forms required at check in.
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.
On Feb.28th we lost a pillar of our community in retired Pepperell PD. SGT. and Selectman William Greathead. The loss has shocked the community and family alike. We are going to Dedicate this year's ride in his Memory. He was also a fellow rider and enjoyed riding his HD. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
