This weekend we in West Boylston celebrated the towns Bicentennial with a art show, bonfire, grand parade and ended it with a fantastic firework show. It was indeed a grand weekend with hundreds of people showed up for the arts show and thousands showed up for the grand parade and fireworks. I took part in helping my mother set up at the art show and I was impressed with both the amount of people set up, and the amount of people that showed up. I saw the bonfire set up and from what I saw it was going to be huge, I wasn’t in attendance but from what I’ve heard it was big and well attended. Overall the day earned an estimated $20,000 for the West Boylston Arts Foundation which is great news because money is needed to protect the arts in West Boylston.

On Sunday was the grand parade and how grand it was. There was thousands of people in attendance and it was great to see the town come together and celebrate as one. The parade had over 2000 participants of various acts and floats. Some of the highlights were the Shriners and their different cars and bikes, the West Boylston school system and their floats, UMASS Amherst band, UMASS Lowell band, and many many classic cars. One of the let downs was the WalMart truck and Dunkin’ Donuts truck, they were both out of place. The day ended with a fantastic fireworks show at Goodale Park and the football field. It was resemblance of the old West Boylston Days and a great way to end a great weekend.
