Since the inception of our event 30 years ago, Lakewood on Parade has been completely planned, organized, and hosted by civic minded volunteers who love to get together and throw this once a year party for the citizens of Lakewood and our surrounding community!
There are no paid staff at any level within our organization, and any proceeds that exceed the reserve fund, go toward funding scholarships for local Lakewood students.
FIRSTeam – This is the group that meets monthly beginning in August to plan, organize and perform the activities required throughout the year to make the event happen. During the early months it generally involves around 2-10 hours per month. A few months before the event, as more time is needed in can increase to somewhere between 5-20 hours per month. Let us know if you are interested in joining the FIRSTeam by contacting one of us on the Contact Page.
EVENTeam – We need volunteers the most on the actual day of the event. Our Event Team volunteers provide assistance in a variety of different ways. They can assist with the various Children Art Projects, The Rides, directing traffic in the parking lot, staffing the information center, and helping FIRSTeam members in their specific areas of responsibilities.
So as you can see, there are many ways to help out. If you, or your organization might be interested in joining us please use our contact form or call us at 303.225.7680.
