Double "R" Twirlettes

We're pleased to report that the Double "R" Twirlettes (pictured) will once again be in the Parade this year. They've been a traditional favorite of the crowds in the past. We feel that they are one of the many entries that make this Parade a family event that is fun for all ages.

Few things make the hair on your arms stand up like the sounds from a band of bagpipers. As always, there will be many bagpipe bands in this year's parade. We'd like to welcome the The Celtic Cross Pipe & Drums bagpipe band (pictured) from Danbury,Ct for their first appearance in the parade. We know that they will provide a great addition to the already stellar entertainment in the parade which provides tremendous invigoration for all who attend.

Stayed tuned to this blog for more updates as the parade approaches!
