Still Time To Get A Float In This Year’s Autumnfest Parade

 

Woonsocket – The 44th Autumnfest is on track to be a tremendous celebration.  One of the highlights of Autumnfest is always the 10-Division Parade.  The parade is held the morning of Columbus Day.  This year that day is October 10, 2022.  Now is the time to secure your school, group or organization placement in this year’s parade.

 

Tom Gray, Autumnfest Parade Coordinator said, “We welcome all organizations to be a part of the great Autumnfest Parade experience.  Some groups have already reached out to us but there is always room for more.”  There is still time for your organization (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Sports Team, Dance Studio, etc.) to get a float in this year’s parade.   

 

The Autumnfest Parade is viewed by thousands that turn out each year to watch.  Plus, both Woonsocket radio stations broadcast the parade live.  The parade is also streamed on the internet live and the parade is also videotaped and broadcast on Cable TV.

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott says thousands are without power across the state as Ian makes landfall. Now a post-tropical cyclone, Ian landed as a hurricane in South Carolina earlier today and is moving up the East Coast. Scott says around 200-thousand people are without power, and that now is not the time to ease up worries.        The White House says the federal response to Hurricane Ian is not about politics. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre [[ kar-EENE jhan-pea-AIR ]] declined to offer an opinion about whether Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is doing a good job in his storm-ravaged state. Jean-Pierre noted DeSantis and President Biden have had several productive phone conversations.        Former President Trump is scheduled to be deposed next month in a defamation lawsuit. A woman named E. Jean Carroll has accused Trump of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s, and says she plans to file a separate civil suit against Trump on top of the defamation suit. The former President has denied Carroll's allegation that he assaulted her.       The CDC says it has "moderate" confidence the rate of monkeypox cases in the U.S. will either decline or plateau within the next two weeks. In its latest report on the outbreak, the CDC said cases could either decline or plateau, or begin rising "slowly" or "rapidly" with exponential growth.        A high-profile trial stemming from last year's Capitol riot is expected to begin soon. Yahoo News reports jury selection has ended in the trial of Stewart Rhodes, who is charged with seditious conspiracy for his role in the attack. Rhodes is the leader of the Oath Keepers militia group who authorities say helped plan the riot and called for civil war. He's one of five defendants in the trial that'll start next week.       Cleveland Browns star Myles Garrett says his recent car crash was a serious wake up call. The defensive end was going 20 miles over the speed limit when he crashed his car on Monday. Thankfully, both he and his passenger escaped relatively unscathed, with Garrett suffering a minor shoulder and bicep sprain.
