Three things I’m a fan of this Fourth of July holiday weekend –
My dad, way back in the day, used to park his pickup truck on Stacy Boulevard the night before the parade (July 2nd), and on more than one occasion, walked the three and a half miles to our home on Norman Ave, to ensure we had an excellent spot. Then, before the parade started, he’d drop us off at the truck, go park at his store (Cape Ann Television Service, Inc.) on Main Street, and walk the half mile back to meet us. It’s one of the many reasons I love and miss him so much. Hopefully someday, I’ll find some of the pictures he took at the parades amongst the bajillion slides I have of his.
I think I’ve watched at least part of this broadcast every year, for as long as I can remember. I do know there was one year, back in the late 80s, that I didn’t see the broadcast, because I was lucky enough to be in Boston, watching from the Esplanade.
