Newtown holds annual Labor Day Parade

Posted: Updated:

The Labor Day Parade, an annual tradition beloved in Newtown for decades, took place Monday.

The parade has been a staple in Newtown for nearly 60 years.

It brought together local volunteer organizations and businesses up along Main Street to celebrate the town and mark the unofficial end of summer and beginning of fall.

Grand Marshall Bill Halstead led this year's parade. Halstead has been chief of the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue for over 40 years. He says this year’s parade is dedicated to volunteers who keep the community strong.

Gov. Lamont was on hand to march in the parade, as were Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Sen. Tony Hwang.
