CarmelFest is seeking volunteers to staff various areas of the festival and the parade. At least 350 are needed.
“We wouldn’t be able to have a CarmelFest without volunteers, (and it’s) a great time to come out and enjoy the Fourth of July celebration and be a part of Carmel,” said Julie Bednarski, volunteer coordinator.
Volunteers are needed to run the kids’ areas and direct parking. Volunteers can serve in the Command Center at the fire station opposite Badger Fields to facilitate communication between public safety officials and the CarmelFest Committee.
CarmelFest also is searching for marshals to monitor the parade route. Marshals will meet Head Marshal Kurt Rupenthal at 7 a.m. July 4 at MCL and serve until noon when the parade ends at Carmel High School.
Volunteers can work the parade and the festival, mostly in two-hour shifts. Online registration will open this month and will be available on-site. To register, visit carmelfest.net.
