I just had to express my feelings about the parade being postponed this year due to roadwork being done and not completed.
I think this is sad. The Hopkinton community loves the Fourth of July parade. Families, seniors, children and adults of all ages come together with community spirit.
Another road could have been chosen, or a field, for example. The high school field would have been a good replacement.
