Millersville Parade Seeks Volunteers

Please volunteer, the Millersville Parade coming up on Oct. 14 requires over 100 volunteers to run smoothly.

The Millersville Parade Committee is seeking volunteers to assist with the Millersville Parade on Oct. 14. The parade is a joint venture between Millersville University and the Millersville community and there are a variety of positions available, including banner carriers, flag carriers, inflatable costume volunteers, parking greeters and many more.

Volunteering at the parade provides an opportunity for community members to give back in a fun and memorable way, as this parade attracts more than 2,000 participants and over 17,000 spectators. Volunteers can include, but are not limited to, residents, businesses, church groups, Rotary groups, women’s clubs, high school students and Millersville University alumni. The only requirement is that volunteers must be 16 years or older for most positions.

The parade route is two miles in length, beginning at Penn Manor High School and ending past the Student Memorial Center on James Street. Depending on the position, some volunteers may be required to walk these two miles.

Start times vary between positions, but the total amount of time volunteering should not exceed four to five hours in the morning. Volunteers should meet at Penn Manor High School in the designated areas for their position unless otherwise specified. Each volunteer will receive a free T-shirt and can attend a free luncheon after the parade has concluded.

The parade requires over 100 volunteers to run smoothly, so please consider this enjoyable opportunity to make a difference! Any questions about volunteering can be directed to parade@millersville.edu or call 717-871-7001.

If interested, make sure to sign up by September 22. For a full list of available positions, click here.
