Annual Horribles Parade to be held July 4th
For the 78th year, the Shaw Improvement Association will sponsor the annual 4th of July Horribles Parade.
There is no need to register; however, participants should arrive promptly at 9:15 a.m. on the corner of Aspen and Arbutus Road for judging. The parade starts at 9:30 a.m. and will be led by a Swampscott police car and fire truck down Aspen Road, across Forest Avenue and around Lexington Circle.
Categories include horribles; floats; bikes and trikes; rollerblades, scooters and boards; pets; best decorated house along the parade route; and adult horribles.
Refreshments, prizes and awards will be given to all participants at the end.
Cash donations are appreciated and needed in order to keep this tradition alive. There will be donation boxes at the beginning and end of the parade route.
