We Want Your Parade Photos!

The Memorial Day parade is one of Westport’s greatest community events.

Everyone has a special spot to watch from. Everyone has a favorite band, float or marcher to photograph. The ceremony immediately afterward on Veterans’ Green is well worth photographing too.

But why share them only with a few hundred dear pals, casual acquaintances and random how’d-they-get-on-my-list Facebook “friends”?

Tomorrow, let all of Westport see “your” Memorial Day parade. Send a few (not all!) of your photos to “06880” (email: 06880blog@gmail.com). Deadline: 2 p.m.. Please include brief identification, if needed, and of course your own name.

I’ll post some (not all!) by the end of the day.

And be creative! We want special photos, for our special parade.
