It was the second hottest parade in the 33 years of the WILI July 4 Boom Box Parade (89F), but that didn't stop thousands of people from coming to Romantic Willimantic for our annual display of independence. The parade lasted 89 minutes. It began with Grand Marshal Wayne Norman and his WILI News Director Mike Morrissette riding in a golf cart wearing tie-died Shaboo shirts, dressed as aging hippie rockers as WILI welcomed the new Shaboo Stage, and the parade ended with David Foster and the Shaboo All-Stars playing blues. Norman had a big, bushy curly Afro wig, a 5-foot long red, white, and blue tie, and was playing (air) guitar, while Morrissette drove the golf cart while playing drums. Other parade favorites included WilliBrew's "Under the WB Sea" float, and the Traveling Fish Head Club of Northeast Connecticut.  To see parade pictures, Facebook WILI Boom Box Parade.

BIG NEWS: You can now hear WILI-AM's programming simulcast on both 1400-AM and on 95.3 FM. Same great programming on both frequencies!!
