Question: Where can you find steel drums, veterans, bag pipes, tanks and local politicians?
Answer: Newton's annual Memorial Day Parade.
Spectators lined the streets on Sunday to watch Newton's Memorial Day Parade, which began at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish and ended at Coletti-Magni Park in Nonantum. Afterward, community members gathered at Pellegrini Park for the first ever post-parade cookout.
Former State Auditor Joe DeNucci, the parade's grand marshal, appeared alongside local law enforcement, marching bands and veterans including Mayor Setti Warren. Local aldermen and U.S. Sen. Scott Brown also made an appearance at the parade.
