Everyone loves a parade

South Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston News
The Town of South Boston made a splash on the Fourth of July with a parade and fireworks display to celebrate American independence. The first-time event drew thousands of people downtown for the 6 p.m. parade, followed by entertainment and activities at Constitution Square and the fireworks show at 9:30 p.m. “It was just an all-American super-patriotic day!” enthused Tamyra Vest of Destination Downtown South Boston. “That’s what the Fourth of July should be — families enjoying each other and their community, and having a down-home patriotic good time.” Vest thanked the Town of South Boston Public Works and members of the fire and police departments for working to ensure a safe and enjoyable event. “We are so thankful for all the entrants who came out to participate in the parade showing their festive red, white and blue,” she added. “We are already looking forward to July 4, 2018!” Meantime, there was a second community Independence Day celebration taking place in Halifax County on Tuesday — a mid-afternoon parade in Elmo. Open to everyone, the Elmo parade featured dozens of entrants riding in automobiles and trucks, on tractors, mounted on horseback or by foot from Ashton Hall to New Arbor Baptist Church. Below, some parade participants were still making their way into downtown Elmo as others headed back on the parade route to Ashton Hall. (David Conner II photos)
