The Hopkinton Horribles Parade started in the 30’s with my great grandfather James McIntyre encouraging the neighborhood kids to dress up and decorate bikes and march up and down Pleasant Street. Over the years it transformed to include the whole town. In the 50’s the parade route would start on Pleasant Street and end on Wood Street where McIntyre Loam is now. There would be a big town cook out with food and pony rides.
