As of 11/27/2017, we are to capacity with the number of floats we can accept.  We have 80 floats participating and we are no longer accepting new applications.   
The Rotary Club of Bangor will host its annual, Festival of Lights Parade, on Saturday, December 2, 2017, beginning at 4:30 pm along Main Street in downtown Bangor. Our 2017 parade theme is “Holiday Memories”.  As in the past, we hope to present a spectacular nighttime parade, featuring entries that convey the many ways of celebrating winter in Maine.
To help defray the cost of transportation, the Rotary will contribute $500 to the first two school or non-profit marching bands who register and march in our parade.
We can accommodate approximately 70 glittering units: marching bands, small and large floats, dancers and other performing groups. Your group may represent traditional scenes celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, New Years, Solstice, Kwanzaa or any winter happening. This dazzling event brightens the season for the thousands of spectators who will line the streets of Bangor. 
Sponsors for this year's parade include:
