SPRINGFIELD –The Town of Springfield has named County Rep. Keith and Janet McCarty of East Springfield as grand marshals of the 102nd Annual Springfield Fourth of July Parade.

Lifelong residents, the McCartys’ love for the area is deeply rooted in their connection with the community. For both, being involved is a natural extension of life in a small town where, according to Keith “if something happens, you’re going to see friends and neighbors pretty quick”.

Rainfall Fails To Dampen Springfield Parade Spirits

Rainfall Fails To Dampen

Springfield Parade Spirits

The 101st Springfield Fourth of July Parade happened this morning in a warm drizzle, but failed to douse smiles along the parade route. Clockwise from top, Rosie the Polka-Dotted Clown (aka Abby Koutnik) had the right sign, but Mother Nature ignored it; among those cheering on the parade route were Albert and Christine Weiss' visiting grandchildren – Claire Payne, 8, center, flanked by Maya, 6, and Ryan, 10 Squires; as usual, retired SUNY President Alan Donovan was along the parade route (his wife, Anne, was a judge) and SUNY Dean Susan Turrell. Below left is Velma Armstrong, Pierstown, who was trying something new at age 84 – she'd never ridden on a parade float, but took up the invitation of the Tanner Hill Herb Farm to promote the Pierstown Grange.
