4th of July Parade - New Suffolk

This year's parade was nearly perfect, what a 4th of July parade should be.  The parade route was on the old poured concrete New Suffolk Avenue and was five blocks long start to finish.  There were very few spectators as nearly everyone was in the parade.  The music was provided by our own Cutchogue United Fire Department Marching Band who do their marching and playing with gravitas.  The parade was geared mostly for the kids to have fun and fun it was with wrapped penny candy being tossed all around to fill little pockets.  As you can imagine, decorated boats figured heavily into float design with riding lawn mowers coming in a close second with three participating.  Families marched together.  One fella painted his white dog red and blue then got his own hair to match!
