Because of current virus protocols, the 2020 parade will be a “wave parade” or “motorcade” throughout the major highways in town.
Because we hold the health and safety of our participants and audience as primary in making our decision regarding the events of that day, we are being creative in our celebrations. Thus, we will have our Grand Marshal, Jack Thornhill, ride with some accompanying celebratory cars as well as patriotic music throughout our roadways.
The event route will begin at the state line at 10 a.m., and will proceed down Nate Whipple Highway (Route 120) to Mendon Road (Route 122).
It will take a left onto Mendon Road proceeding at a parade pace through the town to Ann & Hope Way. Taking the left at Ann & Hope Way, it will proceed to Broad Street, take a left at the site of the Catholic Oak, then take a right after the Blackstone Memorial to Blackstone Street. Arriving at High Street, it will take a left and proceed on High Street as it becomes Diamond Hill Road (Route 114) and proceed back to Nate Whipple Highway taking a right toward the North Attleboro, Mass., line where it started.
