Be Part of The Tradition! 


The featured events are the always unique morning Horribles Parade and a spectacular evening shoreline illumination and aerial fireworks display held at West Beach. Once again we will dedicate the 4th of July West Beach Shoreline Illumination to our friends who cannot be with us to enjoy our hometown celebration. To honor a loved one at the Shoreline Flare Illumination please fill out the Illumination Dedication Form and mail it in or return it to any Committee member. Rounding out the holiday events, the Committee also sponsors the House Decorating Contest, the Family & Friends Cookout, the youngsters Scavenger Hunt, the post Parade “Old Timers” adult softball game at Dix Park, races and games at West Beach on the afternoon of the 4th, and musical entertainment at the Beach leading up to the fireworks.

The Horribles Parade is a very special event. The majority of the Parade is comprised of floats entered by individuals and neighborhoods from the greater Farms-Prides area. These floats often poke fun at current events, local issues, and national politics. Although there are many musical entries, the local participation is what gives the Parade its special character. Plus, it steps off at the early hour of 8:00AM! Enter a float in the parade and win up to $1,000! 
Corporate Sponsors and area businesses are encouraged to show their 4th of July spirit with an entry in the parade. Prizes will be awarded for Best Sponsor and Best Business entryPolitical candidates are also welcome to enter the parade and reach an audience of several thousand viewers. 

All money raised by the Committee to provide the celebration comes from the local community. There is no government or grant funding received to support this great tradition. The annual budget for 2020 is $116,000! A major fundraising event is the annual auction held on the first Saturday in April each year at the Hastings House, the location of the Farms-Prides Community Association. Additionally, starting in June and continuing right through the holiday, wristbands are sold at various business locations and by volunteers who solicit donations door to door.
