HRTC to host "Horribles Parade" on July 4th

By contributor,

Let’s get ready to “Horrible”! July 4th, Independence Day, is just a few weeks away, are you ready for the return of the town’s “Horribles” Parade? The “Ancient and Horribles” parade is a New England tradition dating back to the 1800’s. Commonly referred to as the “Horribles” parade in Hopkinton, it is a parade originated to have some fun with national and local “political satire”, sort of like a floating “political roast”.

The theme for this year’s parade is “America the Beautiful”.
