Plainfield's Independence Day Parade: Should we stop now?

Stepping off in a patriotic vein.

Though it was not July 4th, yesterday was a perfect day for Plainfield's 88th Central Jersey Independence Day Parade.

With the spirited return of the Plainfield High School Marching Band and Cheerleaders, a lively Ecuadorian troupe as part of the SID contingent and the flamboyant Islanders dance troupe as a spectacular finale, there was some real pizzazz.

The elegance of the Stone Square Lodge's float and the always-well-themed PMUA float were joined by newcomers this year, the Plainfield Elite Soccer Club and the local Knights of Columbus chapter, which meets at St. Bernard's church.

A selection of the 160-plus pictures from the Parade.

Am having trouble posting a slide show of the pictures.

Will continue post when they are up. Bear with me.
