OK, our timing was a little off getting over to the parade on our bikes, so we missed the WWII vets and some of the other headliners. The first sight we came across was an army tank (one of the riders was smoking, which we found curious).
Our most classic picture of the day was U.S. Congressman Barney Frank being escorted by a creature on rollerblades. Those monsters were a nice addition to the parade.
Loved hearing a bunch of kids issuing “Candy Alert!” then charging down the hill in front of Town Hall to battle for Tootsie Rolls, etc.
Gotta give credit to the numerous marchers who were carrying kids on their backs.
Thanks to Wellesley’s Heather M for passing along these photos (never realized Uncle Sam was so small).
