Braintree Stars and Stripes parade will step off at 11:45 AM from the parking lot of the Registry of Motor Vehicles/Bay Shore Athletic Club, 10 Plain Street and proceed north on Washington St and end at the Hollis School, 482 Washington St.
This year, the committee in conjunction with the town, is planning an extensive "family program" with a food festival, music for all generations, and fireworks.
A "food truck rodeo" will be held at Braintree High School, 128 Town St, Braintree, during the celebration program beginning at 2 PM after the parade has concluded. Over 25 diverse food trucks from all over New England will be on hand to offer something for everyone's appetite. Each truck will offer a variety of menu price options with three different levels that can fit into any family's budget.
There will be free + fairly priced activities and attractions so that all can participate and enjoy.
