The Double Ender Committee is seeking passionate volunteers to help us with the parade on July 4th. This is a great opportunity to be part of a beloved Block Island tradition and to make it a memorable event for all.

As a volunteer, you will have a variety of tasks to help us run the parade smoothly. Your basic responsibilities will include:

  • Reporting to The Oar at 9:00 a.m. for check-in

  • Helping with float registration and organization

  • Assisting the parade judges with their duties

  • Marching in the parade, either carrying a banner, flag, or donation bucket (note: this requires being able to walk for about 1.5 miles and uphill at times)

  • Collecting donations from spectators

  • Providing directions and other support to parade-goers


If you're interested in volunteering, please reach out to us through the contact form. Let's make this parade a huge success together!
