ATHOL — River Rat Day 2018 is quickly approaching, and organizers are wondering about who is planning to march in the annual parade this year?

The parade will be held Saturday and will start at approximately 9:40.

The runners in the Big Cheese 5K Roadrace will kick it off.

Those who plan to be in the parade this year must register online. The registration link is: www.northquabbinchamber.com

Parade participants must fill out the description box by telling about themselves or organization/business and who or what they are marching in support of, if anything.

This description will be used by the on-air broadcasters for television and radio to describe entries. Registration is needed to put together the divisions and marching order.

Those who register will receive an email on Thursday that will tell where they are in the lineup, including division and where to assemble before the parade.

The deadline for registration is Tuesday at midnight.
