This is a great way to show our fancy dress, wave and take a leisurely stroll down the main street. It's a mile and a half so wear comfy shoes.
Why should you care?
The Town of Groton has provided the SCA with a year round indoor site for Heavy List, fencing, Youth, Sewing, Drumming, dancing, whatever, for five years at No Cost. They gave us a friggin' school to play with. Although we have lost the site, the Town of Groton is currently actively looking for a new site for us. Now, what town has bent over for the SCA like that? This is a great way to show our appreciation for what they've done for us.
The SCA has participated in this march for several years now and it's always been a lot of fun!
After the parade, there will be a Pot Luck Bar-B-Que at my place. This year we celebrate a new seneschal and a new exchequer!
Day: July 4th.
We meet at the Groton Shopping Plaza Rt 1 by the post office at 0800hrs. Park and take a shuttle to the parade start. Parade starts at 10am and we walk back to the Shopping plaza. Bring a basket for candy.
Directions: Map Quest is wrong!

This event is a lot of fun and is great for getting the SCA noticed. If you can't walk the mile and a half, support positions are needed so let me know. You can email me at email@example.com.
