A half-century ago in the fall, the Cary School Band would march through the streets of Downtown and everyone would join them forming a parade of cars with merchant signs on them, neighborhood groups and makeshift floats. It wasn’t called Cary Band Day Parade back then but over the years it’s become a tradition in our Downtown.
The 54th edition of the Parade is coming up this weekend.
