Hingham’s annual Fourth of July parade holds true again this year as a strong tradition. The parade’s start along Middle Street and Main Street was crowded with not only Hingham residents but out-of-staters as well.
One man made a special trip just for the parade, “Grew up in Hingham and I come up every year for the Fourth of July. I’m down in Florida now. Love it and miss it.”
Many parade watchers were long-time residents like Dick Morse who said it’s become a tradition for him and his wife Charmaine. “We have never missed one in 50 years and it’s always a great parade and a great together, alot of friends; it’s wonderful,” said Morse
The well-attended hour long Hingham parade included multiple drum and bugle groups, a Wells Fargo 4-horse drawn carriage, and vintage cars. Uncle Sam and Wally the Green Monster also made an appearance.
But Hingham’s holiday events aren’t over yet. A vintage baseball team that walked in the Independence Day parade has a game scheduled for 3PM Saturday at Derby Academy.
