Take a walk down memory lane and remember a time when Huckins Avenue was a tree-lined road nestled between open fields, when neighbors caught up at the beloved corner store, or waited together in war time ration lines, spent lazy summer days on the beach, or raced boats across Quincy Bay. And who doesn’t have a great story about that cherished Squantum tradition, the Fourth of July parade?

Hear some great stories by our Squantum Storytellers: Ralph Ames, Sr., Marie Clark, Pat Duggan, Mary LaFlamme, Maureen Mazrimus, Jim and Sandi Sumner, Bob Sealund, Jack Westerbeke, and Ruth Ann Wetherby.

First time marchers…the Scoop on Squantum’s Fourth!

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.
