Patriotism on Parade in Penfield

22 Jun

This summer’s Fourth of July celebrations have all been put on ice, but Penfield has devised a fun way to celebrate the holiday … virtually.

Here’s the notice they’ve sent out to everyone:

Hey Penfield! There won’t be a formal parade this year, but we can still celebrate and show our patriotic spirit! Join your friends and neighbors for a little friendly competition: Penfield’s Patriotism on Parade!

American patriotic house with striped flag logo icon vectorDress up your home/property in its patriotic best and send your address to Penfield Recreation at srenner@penfield.org. Be sure to let us know if your display is best viewed during the daylight or in the dark. We will add your location to a list of  addresses that the public can drive by to enjoy a dose of patriotism. They will vote on their favorite display and the house with the most votes will win this year’s coveted award along with town-wide, year-long bragging rights!

We encourage you to use recycled/upcycled materials in your displays, and choose a theme such as honoring America’s heroes, or a unique patriotic theme of your choice. All entries must be non-political, non-discriminatory, and appropriate for all ages.

Displays should be ready for public display and voting July 3-5. Voting will end at 12:00 midnight Sunday, July 5.

Voting link can be found on the Quick Links section of http://www.penfield.org and http://www.penfieldrec.org beginning July 3.

Way to go Penfield! How about we do something like this, Webster? Even if the town and village don’t organize a similar event, feel free to send me a photo of your decked-out house and we’ll have a mini-contest right here on my blog.
