Small Town Life: 250th Anniversary Parade


This year marks the 250th anniversary of the founding of our little town. We may be little, but we celebrated big time. The highlight was a two-hour parade starting on..wait for it…Milford Street! We celebrated by decorating our home, hosting family for a cookout and enjoying the parade. As an added treat, the floats and vehicles were lined up before the parade in front of our house. My niece got to explore antique tractors and engines and meet some beauty contestant winners.

    For a small town, you have a fabulous parade with lots of bands… the Mummers, the Liberty Jazz Band on a firetruck, the American Legion Band on a trolley, the Middlesex County Volunteers, a marching band, and probably more that aren’t in your pictorial. I think bands make a parade. Who are the Ghostbusters?

      Thank you. There was a lot of variety and some great acts. Iโ€™m not sure who does the Ghostbusters. Oddly, on Sunday mornings I see a Ghostbusters themed vehicle parked outside the local hardware shop. Itโ€™s not the same one but definitely odd to see.

        Ah no, I know the feeling of cake envy! Although I only have it with cakes you can actually eat – and that look pretty! Mine taste good but look horrible! ๐Ÿ˜‚
