57th ANNUAL DENNIS ANTIQUE CAR PARADE
AUGUST 16, 2015 put the date on your calendar!
Here we go again; it is June, time to plan for another great parade and “Dennis Summerfest 2015” We are struggling to keep this event going and free. So we are this year asking for donations to go toward paying the Summerfest and fireworks expenses. We are planning to have our Beach Party at the West Dennis Beach with the Band “the Most “ again! , Bon fire and Fantastic Fireworks on Saturday August 15th and then on Sunday August 16th Our 57th Annual Antique Car parade will start at the West Dennis Beach and end at The Nathanial Wixon School on Rt. 134 in Dennis. At the school we will have music, food, crafts. Beach passes will be mailed the first week of August for you to bring the day of the parade. So please get in your reservation before August 1st, this helps us plan our police detail and order ribbons. I will exchange your beach pass for a parade ribbon just beyond the gatekeepers. ( look for the crazy hat ladies!)

Line up will start at 11:00 a.m. At the far end of the West Dennis Beach. The Parade will head out promptly at 12:00 noon
following the same route as last year. (Map provided if needed) This is a Free Event for you (there are a lot of cost involved
esp. the police details) all we ask is that you stay until at least 3:00 pm so folks can enjoy viewing the cars. We are
continuing to try and have more things going to make you want to stay, so if you have some ideas, want to be on the
committee, or just help out that day let me know! Pack a picnic or buy lunch from one of the vendors and enjoy the day.
Don’t miss out on this time honored summer tradition. Bob and I are looking forward to seeing you again this year!!
