Results are posted here.

Please contact us with your comments, feedback and suggestions to help us make next year’s 34th annual event an even better experience.


Questions about candy at the Homecoming Parade

The Optimist Club of Erie, who organizes this event needs to secure approvals from several town government agencies as well as secure insurance for the event itself. A number of these agencies have voiced concerns related to candy throwing, specifically parents not controlling their children from running in front of moving vehicles as well as people getting struck by candy being rocketed at them from aggressive children on the floats. These concerns have been raised based on previous years’ experience in the event, and it is for these reasons that the policies have been established as they have for this year’s event. There will be no throwing candy this year.
