Sudbury July 4th ParadeWe have enjoyed watching the parade for many years from the vantage point of the corner of Union and Route 20. It was very upsetting this year to watch how unresponsible people were. While I know that the candy throwing is a big hit with the kids, it was out of hand at this year's parade. The kids paid no attention to the marchers or floats in their rush to get candy. Sometimes interferring with the flow of the parade. We watched the crowd of the Sudbury Plaza side of Route 20 creep closer and closer into Route 20, narrowing the path for the parade. There were two Sudbury policemen on duty on that side and they did very little to keep the crowd back. Several times walking participants of particular floats had to ask the crowds to step back. With so many little children running into the center of the road to get the candy, we were surprised that no one was hurt. The suggestion for the future parades would be to put up the saw horses or some type of barrier closer to the curb on the plaza side of Rt 20 and also the blocked off portion of Rt 20 to keep the crowds behind them.
