The second annual Labor Day parade will march through East Providence on Sept. 2.
The parade will feature bands, floats, police and fire vehicles, balloons, candy and a variety of organizations and businesses marching through the city.
A highlight will be the Pink Heels fire truck, which you will be able to sign at City Hall where the parade ends, said City Councilor Thomas Rose, who started the parade last year and is organizing it again this year.
Pink Heels is a national organization with a RI chapter that travels the state promoting the need for more support for breast cancer research and its victims.
The parade starts at 10 am at East Providence High School and moves east on Waterman Avenue, through Six Corners to Taunton Avenue and ends at the City Hall. It will be held rain or shine, Rose said.
“I wanted to end the summer with something the people can enjoy for free,” he said.
Among the other marchers so far, Rose said, are the "Budweiser Buggy," the Shriners, WinterFest and Carousel floats, the AYSO soccer organization, and the YMCA.
