NEW HARTFORD PLUS | 4th of July Parade In Barkhamsted | Maria Moore photos
The Best - and Only - Parade on the 4th of July in northwest Connecticut is the one held in the town of Barkhamsted. With its unique Star Band, made up of anyone who can play an instrument and shows up on the morning of the parade, and its casual handling of politicians - who are lucky if they get mentioned by name - this Independence Day celebration is everything you'd want in a small-town parade. Take a look for yourself and be sure to visit NewHartfordPlus.com for all your news from New Hartford, Barkhamsted, and northwest Connecticut.
