After years of cheering on and photographing the fantabulous Squantum Fourth of July Parade, the Squantum Scoop got an inside glimpse with our first parade as marchers. We stepped out with the dancers, costumed creatures, and lawn chair brigaders for the 105th marching of the parade. As always, Squantumites showed your spirit decked out in reds, whites, and blues along the parade route. We had a blast!

Big kudos to the amazingly organized Parade Committee! With big smiles they queued up the neighborhood floats, bands, and festooned kiddies, and set us on our way through the crowd-lined streets of Squantum. Loved seeing the entire peninsula decked out in flags this year! Thanks to all of the neighbors who contributed flags, and to Jim Stamos for organizing the flag effort.

And we have you sun dancers to thank for holding off those deluges until after the parade.
Just a few drops to keep us cool before we stepped off on our march around our
spirited peninsula.
