PartyLite, the world’s #1 candle party business, will sponsor the Tom Turkey float in the Plymouth, Mass., Thanksgiving Parade on Saturday, Nov. 23, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Nelson Street in Plymouth.
According to Donna Green, Manager of Community Relations and Corporate Giving at PartyLite, 2013 marks the 16th year that PartyLite has sponsored a float in the “America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration”.
Green says that, as part of Plymouth’s biggest event of the year – which includes a food festival, crafters pavilion, Coast Guard demonstration, and children’s events as well as the annual parade—PartyLite employee volunteers will march the 1.5 mile parade route holding the ropes that tether a giant Tom Turkey balloon created by Fabulous Inflatables.
Free PartyLite tealight candles will be given out at the PartyLite tent on the waterfront between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday. Tealights also will be given out from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday during the annual Patriotic Concert in Memorial Hall at 83 Court Street.

It’s not surprising that in this beautiful season of celebration, our employees are excited to join other Plymouth residents and thousands of visitors from around the world for this cherished event. Celebrating Plymouth’s unique place in America’s history reminds us of our own heritage and our deep gratitude for all the good things we enjoy in life.”
