Florence hosts after Thanksgiving holiday parade

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The Saturday after Thanksgiving is parade day in the Florence section of Northampton.

Saturday was no exception as the town came out for the annual holiday parade.

The people of Florence lined the streets, but the parade does a great job of attracting people from other communities in Hampshire County.

John Steins brought 12 teenagers with him from the hill town of Chesterfield.

“I just love Christmas music and marching, lifts your spirits, keeps you going and community sense of togetherness,” said Steins.

It’s a parade with agricultural flair. Spectators told 22News, they were not disappointed.
