Jen Chapman, Director of the Maine Lobster Festival Parade, is excited to announce The New England Patriots Cheerleaders will be in this year’s Lobster Festival Parade.

The New England Patriots Cheerleaders look forward to another banner year in 2018. The team has consistently been praised for its ability to harness and develop relationships with fans and aspiring cheerleaders through their interactive website and very popular social media platforms. Supporting the efforts of charitable organizations throughout New England, the cheerleaders are able to use their celebrity status to make a difference in the community. In addition to their philanthropic efforts, the squad makes about 1,000 individual public appearances annually for businesses and corporations, spreading cheer to fans at a variety of events throughout New England and across the country. 

While the Patriots Cheerleaders have become accustomed to entertaining thousands of Patriots fans from the sidelines, members of the squad have traveled overseas on goodwill missions to entertain thousands of patriots on the front lines. The Patriots Cheerleaders have performed in over two dozen combat areas and have visited more than 25 countries. In addition to their goodwill military missions and appearances throughout the United States, the squad has entertained and appeared at many high-profile events, including performances in Super Bowls, Pro Bowls, an American Bowl in Mexico City, Patriots games in London in 2009 and 2012, and Mexico City again in 2017. This year’s squad will continue to serve not only as day-of-game entertainers, but also as Patriots ambassadors throughout New England and around the world.

After the Parade, Saturday August 4, the Patriots Cheerleaders will be down on the Festival Grounds on the Main Stage from 12:30pm to 1pm for photos and signing autographs. Don’t forget, you can purchase your Saturday admission bracelet BEFORE the parade starts. Just go to the Main Gate or the Park Street Gate at 9am and get your Saturday bracelet. No long lines after the parade, and no waiting to get down on the grounds.
