Mark Doyle, Tom DeVivo, Tom’s daughter Amanda, and Dennis O’Brien carry the banner–with BOOM BOXES!
The 28th annual WILI July 4th BOOM BOX PARADE drew more huge crowds to Main Street in Willimantic on a sunny, hot, humid day.  The parade lasted 75 minutes.  For more parade information and listener comments, see our facebook page at WILI BOOM BOX PARADE. Channels 3, 8, and 61 featured video coverage of the parade, and Charter’s public access channel CT-14 will replay the full parade at a later date.  The Chronicle and Bulletin did stories on the parade and the Courant and Bulletin had photo galleries on their websites.
