Here at the Labor Day Parade in #Newtown. Getting things started w/ a massive flag walking down Main Street
The Newtown, Connecticut Labor Day parade has been a town institution since 1962. It’s the largest parade in the state and features over two hours worth or marchers.
When parade organizers met in February, only two months after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school, the group decided this year’s event would go off undeterred, and today, the annual celebration happened without the usual police sirens or musket fire, but with a strong showing of strength and resilience from the still recovering community.
