Police dept.
is parade
The Holiday Dazzle Light Parade Committee named the Putnam Police Department as this year’s parade Grand Marshal. According to parade Chairman Gary Osbrey, “The committee is proud to honor the Putnam Police Department as they celebrate 125 years of protecting our community.”
The 20th annual parade is set to roll at 5 p.m. Nov. 28, in downtown Putnam. The rain date is Dec. 5.
To reduce congestion before the parade begins, this year, the Grove Street staging area will be reconfigured with parade floats lining one side of Grove Street instead of both sides. Floats will line up on one side of Grove Street from the Grove Street Monument to Killingly Avenue, and will continue down Killingly Avenue.
Once again this year, the parade committee will present a “litter-free parade.” Before the parade begins, an army of volunteers from Green Valley Church of Putnam will hand out trash bags donated by The Last Green Valley. After the parade, volunteers will walk the parade route, picking up trash bags from the crowd and depositing the bags into a Town of Putnam Public Works truck.
The 20th annual Holiday Dazzle Light Parade will step off at 5 p.m. on Nov. 28 from the Grove Street Monument and will follow Grove Street, merging right onto South Main Street, left onto Front Street (through the center of downtown Putnam), right onto Kennedy Drive (at Cargill Falls) and will travel past Rotary Park and Riverfront Commons on Kennedy Drive, taking a right onto Providence Street, ending at the new Putnam Municipal Complex at the corner of Providence and School streets.
Entry forms are available at WINY Radio, the Putnam Town Hall and online at www.winyradio.com. For more information, contact parade organizer and chairman Gary Osbrey at 860-928-1350 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
