Glocester maintained a Fourth of July tradition on Wednesday afternoon.

The 91st annual Ancients and Horribles Parade rolled down Putnam Pike starting at 4 p.m., with hundreds of people in attendance.

"I put my chairs out about 8:30 this morning," Alan Chamberland said.

Some braved the hot sun, while others stayed under tents or in the shade.

"It’s too hot in the sun," Deagan Roux said. "Much, much too hot."

The famed parade has been a spectacle since 1926.

Along with the marchers and bands, the Ancients and Horribles Parade is known for poking gentle fun at local, state and national politics.
