This olde town tradition is a sight to behold, for the youngest of young or the oldest of old. The floats are unveiled and the ribbons adorned, the blare of the fire truck sirens and antique car horns. The bands they will march or ride on a float, the kids are on bicycles, rollerblades, scooters or boats. The political players they walk and shake hands. The Militia are coming for all who are fans. Family and Friends, come one, come all. Wave the flag, and have a Ball!!
