FRAMINGHAM, MA - Many residents of Framingham got up early this morning to take a short drive over the town line to Natick.

Some got up early just to make sure they had a good spot to watch Natick's Annual 4th of July Parade -- and others to get ready to be in it.

As a town, we should thank our neighbors to the east for putting together a first-class, traditional, all-American Independence Day parade -- and for being unselfish enough to include Framingham performers, musicians, politicians, classic car owners, fire engines as well as parade watchers.

Most of the images below are of people from Framingham, we have many, many more photos and videos of parade participants from ...[read more]
