The Noblesville July 4th Festival needs volunteers for the festival and parade Wednesday, July 4th on the grounds of Noblesville High School with shifts only two hours long and all volunteers will receive a voucher for a free meal to enjoy before or after their shift.

A special drawing will be held again this year just for volunteers when at the completion of the shift, each volunteer will receive a raffle ticket for chances to win $300, $200, or $100.

Volunteers who work two shifts will receive three tickets.

Many different volunteer opportunities are available; everything from setup assistance to monitoring the kids' activities to scoring the Minute It To Win It games and more.

The majority of volunteer shifts are from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.; 6 to 8 p.m.; and 8 to 10 p.m..
