Westport’s Memorial Day parade is a small-town classic. And photos like this are classic too:
Mimi Rossell Wolfe posted it to social media the other day.
It’s from 1967 or ’68, she says. Her mother was the Cub Scout leader.
Over half a century later, some things have changed. Traffic on Main Street is one-way (and the parade no longer takes that route). The Mobil station is Vineyard Vines. Sport Mart is — I forget.
But crowds still line the sidewalks. Cub Scouts still march. (A few) kids still ride their bikes.
See you at Monday’s parade. Be sure to take photos, to post on whatever replaces social media in 2075 or ’76.
