Beautiful day for the Dorchester Day parade

At the Dorchester Day parade

On the Dot Out float

Dorchester came out to celebrate itself today, with the annual parade from Lower Mills all the way up Dot. Ave. to Savin Hill.

Unlike last year's parade, at which both marchers and viewers wilted on a hot, humid day, today was perfect weather for a parade.

Dorchester's large Vietnamese community was amply represented in the parade:

Even with the relatively cool temperatures, by Fields Corner, some marchers could have used a break:

Who doesn't love a parade? Even parrots:

MR8 folks and Carlos Arredondo marched in the parade. So did some anti-war folks:

Remember: Always recycle your moose.
