The Brooklin Fourth of July parade, held at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 5, returned with enthusiastic crowds and beautiful weather after last year’s restrictions prevented the event. Kicking off the day’s festivities at 9:15 a.m. was the Brooklin Town Band, performing at the Friend Memorial Library.
The parade, which began on Center Harbor Road and continued through downtown, featured a variety of themed floats, old cars and, of course, plenty of candy. The celebration continued on until it reached the town green, where the parade broke to make way for games, music and barbecue.
