Loyalty Day Parade

On April 29, Upton will celebrate Loyalty Day with its annual parade led by members of the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign War. Marching in the parade will be members of Upton Police, Upton Fire, Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Upton Men's Club, Miscoe Hill Marching Band, and all the players and coaches of Upton Baseball and Nipmuc Youth Softball.

According to Tricia Lucier, the Loyalty Day Coordinator, "A full day of activities is planned, starting at 9am with a Baseball Skills challenge for ages 8-12 including a home run derby, base running, accurate throw, etc. all at the VFW fields." The Snack Shack will also be open from 9 am to dusk. At 11:30 a.m., parade participants meet at Memorial school and line up to march with 12 noon as the official start time.

The parade will follow Route 140 from Memorial School to the VFW where players, family members, and friends will congregate to hear short speeches from local dignitaries. "This is a great day for the kids and many residents in Upton comment on how much they enjoy seeing the parade," said Upton Youth Baseball president, Paul Pirozzi. "There will be lots of activities at VFW complex throughout the day, including the baseball/softball games going on both fields throughout the afternoon." Pirozzi also said that last year was Tricia Lucier's first year as event coordinator and credits her for making it one of their most popular events with the addition of so many family oriented activities.

"Upton Baseball's Annual Cookout at the VFW will be from 12:30 to 3 p.m. with baseball and softball games running from 1:30 p.m. to dusk," Lucier commented. "Activities are planned throughout the day such as face painting, moonwalk, music, baseball toss, arts and crafts etc." Pirozzi added that they are expecting "roughly 21 baseball teams, ranging in age from 5-12, with over 250 kids plus we hope to have 80 girls from the Mendon Upton softball league."

"This event is possible because of the many community members that volunteer their time," Lucier said. "Baseball parents, Honor Society Students and the Veterans are all lined up to run the days events." According to Pirozzi, "we solicit volunteers during our registration process to help with Loyalty Day and typically will have 20-30 parents' help."
