The Most Bizarre 4th Of July Parade Takes Place In This Small Town In Connecticut

On July 4th each year, Willimantic celebrates Independence Day with Connecticut’s Unique People’s Parade. You’ll find colorful floats, participants in costume, and plenty of boom boxes, but you won’t see a single marching band. Full of spirit and fun, this celebration is world famous for its unique spin on a traditional event. Let’s take a look at the Willimantic Boom Box Parade.
