Candidates sought for Homecoming's town crier

NEWBURYPORT -- If you ever wanted to lead your own parade, you and a few of your family or friends could be the official Yankee Homecoming town crier.

You can select your own mode of transportation — you can ride in a limousine, a convertible, a Pedi cab, a horse and buggy or you can walk down High street on Aug. 4

You may select any band marching in the parade to accompany you.

You and your family/friends will be escorted to the reviewing stand to watch the parade.

You will be the official judge of the floats.

Get your picture in the paper.

You will be given a commemorative bell for this historic occasion.

Enter the Official Yankee Homecoming Town Crier Event, then gather your team to help promote your candidacy. Have your family and friends vote for you even if they do not have to live here, have them vote early and vote often for the cost of $1 a vote.

From May 1 through June 30 is the time to campaign and get people to vote. The person who raises the most money is named the town crier.

All money raised is donated to Yankee Homecoming, Newburyport’s annual summer festival.

For an application or more information, contact Geri Dorr, email or 978-590-9426.
