PartyLite Sponsoring Giant Flag In Thanksgiving Celebration

Plymouth, MA - November 19, 2014 -- Employees of PartyLite, the world's number one party plan candle company, will carry a giant American flag in the America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration Parade on Saturday, Nov. 22, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on the Plymouth, Massachusetts, waterfront. In addition, PartyLite is sponsoring a special float honoring the 200th anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner" national anthem.

According to Donna Green, Manager of Community Relations and Corporate Giving at PartyLite, 2014 marks the 19th year that PartyLite has sponsored a float in the Plymouth parade. The 2014 theme, "Land of the Free," was chosen to honor two important U.S. milestones: the 200th anniversary of "The Star Spangled Banner," written by Francis Scott Key; and the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act.

"PartyLite employees could not be prouder to carry our country's flag," says Green. "By carrying the flag, we recognize not only the brave passengers of the Mayflower, who helped found our country, but also the brave men and women who serve in our country's armed forces around the globe today keeping our freedom safe."

Green says that 25 PartyLite employee volunteers will march the 1.5 mile parade route holding the 40-by-25 foot American flag. PartyLite and its employees have participated in every parade since the celebration began.

Other PartyLite employees will hand out tealight candles at the PartyLite tent on the waterfront between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday. Tealights also will be given out from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday during the first annual "Illuminate 2014" ceremony and festivities kicking off the five-year countdown to the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing in Plymouth and the first Thanksgiving.

"PartyLite has always been so proud to be headquartered in Plymouth," says Joan Connor, President of PartyLite North America, "and it is really an ideal fit when you think about it. PartyLite sells the ultimate products for celebration - the best quality candles you can buy anywhere in the world."

PartyLite, whose candles, home décor and home fragrance products are available in 23 countries around the world, will provide much of the actual candle light for the Illuminate 2014 event, including donated candles for luminaria and the candle-lighting ceremony.

PartyLite is also sponsoring the Plymouth 400 Illuminate mobile app, which includes the weekend's celebration schedule. Additionally, the app will allow people in Plymouth, Massachusetts, to engage with participants in sister city, Plymouth, England, and connect through the app's social media photo-sharing feature. The app also gives users the ability to light a virtual candle to illuminate in their own communities."
