Be in the Parade

The theme for this year's parade is "On the Rhode."

The parade will start, as usual, at 11:00am on Nate Whipple Highway (Route 120) Cumberland, RI, close to the North Attleboro town line.

The parade, over 90 years old, has been known as the Horribles Parade. However, it now includes fire trucks, antique and custom cars, bands, clowns, decorated bicycles, Patriotic Walkers and floats. The success of the parade has been founded on the creativity and enthusiasm of people such as yourself. Therefore, can we count on your participation this year?

If building a float is not for you, then perhaps you or your organization can participate in some other way. Whatever you decide, we hope you will participate in the Annual Parade.


Here is the Official Parade Entry Form. Please fill it out to let us know about your entry.

Prize money is awarded for the best floats. In addition, plaques will also be awarded in various categories. So, start planning your floats now. 

To guarantee inclusion in the judging for prizes, you should be present and ready to be judged by 9:30 A.M. Judging will begin promptly at 10:00AM.

As a safety precaution, please be advised that no objects may be thrown or sprayed from any float (e.g. silly string, snappers, candy, and water pistols/guns). Failure to comply will result in forfeiture of participation in future parades. Help keep our children safe on the parade route!

The Arnold Mills Parade Association and the people of Cumberland hope to see you at the parade. Thank you.
