The Feast of the Blessed Sacrament Parade is perhaps the largest parade in New Bedford.

The parade will start at 2 p.m. with over 40 different organizations marching the one-mile route from Brooklawn Park to the Feast grounds at Madeira Field.

The parade features brass bands, fife and drum bands, bagpipers, popular singing groups, folkloric dancers, pirates, clowns, jugglers, militias, beauty queens, delightful floats, veterans groups, classic cars and lots of fun and surprises for everyone.

This year's Parade Marshal is Cristiano Nunes
