The Y’s Men prepare for Westport's Memorial Day Parade

 The article below was written by Dan Woog and published on his “06880” blog on Saturday, May 27, 2017.


Y’s Men Wisely Saved Last Year’s Float

They didn’t last year — but there was a good reason.

The parade was canceled, due to rain.

Yesterday and today — despite predictions of more bad weather — they headed to Vince Penna’s garage, and took last year’s float out of mothballs.

Here’s a sneak preview.

To see the real thing, head to the parade on Monday.

Or — if it comes to that — the one in 2018.
