Everybody loves a parade - or so the saying goes - and that was no more apparent than at Thursday's Old Home Week Parade in Greencastle. The only traffic that moved in downtown Greencastle on Thursday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. was the home-spun parade that entertained onlookers. Sierra Wagaman, 17, of Marion, Pa., was one of thousands who watched the 95-unit parade snake its way through town. “It gets better every Old Home Week,” she said. For the soon-to-be Greencastle-Antrim High School senior, it was hard to divert her eyes from the parade route to ask her questions.

Finding the perfect birthday gift can be a nearly impossible challenge. But Saturday, Rep. Todd Rock, R-Franklin, found a birthday present for Mont Alto's 100th anniversary celebration that had the town talking. Rock asked Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett to serve as grand marshal of Mont Alto's Centennial Parade, and he accepted. “Two years ago, Todd (Rock) asked me to do this and convinced me to come for the 100th anniversary, and I said yes,” Corbett said. “I keep my word.” “With about 67 counties across the state and thousands of little towns just like Mont Alto, and he picked us out of that group - we're very thankful,” Rock said.

In typical American fashion, Shepherdstown celebrated the nation's 237th birthday Thursday with a “bigger than usual parade” and an “old-fashioned, laid-back, family-oriented Fourth of July picnic.” So said Peter Smith, a member of the Shepherdstown Rotary Club, which sponsors both annual events. The 42-unit parade began its march and roll down German Street at 11 a.m. The picnic got under way at Morgans Grove Park at 1 p.m. and lasted until about 3 p.m., or until “people got tired,” Smith said.

Though she left Sharpsburg 51 years ago, Martha, 69, of Waynesboro, Pa., said she and Charles, 78, watch the parade each year across the street from her “home house.” Her brother and sister both used to play in the parade with the Boonsboro school band.

The Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif., on New Year's Day will feature a float that will carry a floragraph - a tribute made with flowers and leaves about 14 inches in diameter resembling a photograph - dedicated to the memory of a Hagerstown teenager whose family donated his organs after he was killed in a car crash earlier this year. Quinn Hoover, 17, died on March 18 after an early-morning accident near Clear Spring. A student at Washington County Technical High School, he was known for his outgoing personality and his prowess on the soccer field, his parents said.
