SOUTHBOROUGH – A familiar holiday tradition spanning over 30 years returned last Friday when the Southborough Library’s young patrons and their grownups marched in this year’s Fourth of July parade.
The tradition resumed after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
Once again this year, most of the parade participants wore red, white and blue attire. They also carried accessories provided by the library including American flags, beads, hats, pinwheels, rattles, sunglasses and wands.
The parade traveled from the library on Main Street, up Common Street past the war veterans’ monuments and then through the Town House.
Marching alongside the library patrons were Assistant Library Director and Children’s Librarian Kim Ivers, and library page Maggie Fitzgerald. They carried CD recorders playing patriotic music.
The celebration continued on the library lawn where ice cream treats were served.
