The 4th of July, time for cookouts, fireworks and parades. In my town, it is time for the North Middleborough 4th of July Parade! Though I have lived in this town for almost 17 years, this was the first time I have attended the parade.
A crowd gathered early to watch the wide variety of marchers. We found a shady spot under a tree and watched as bands, politicians, floats, antique cars and practically every tractor in town made their way past us.
Our District Attorney, Tim Cruz, passing out candy - Matthew would vote for him if he could because of the candy!
There were lots of cute dogs participating in the parade - so patriotic of them!
Since we live in a small, rural town - there were lots of tractors!
The funniest part of the parade was the route . . . it traveled one way down Plymouth Street, then turned and came back the same way so there were marchers in both directions of the street!
