Parade celebrates best of Dot

Dot Day 2009Dot Day 2009The 2009 Dot Day Parade drew tens of thousands to a sun-drenched Dorchester Ave. yesterday for the annual celebration of all things, well, Dorchester. Above, Chris Lovett captured the scene near Lower Mills. Adam Gaffin has more photos from his perch near Peabody Square at Universal Hub. Adam Pieniazek grabbed some shots of the action near Savin Hill Ave. and writes about the experience here. Much more coming later today.


I've watched the parade for so many years now - I think this was the best one yet - the weather, the crowd and the participants were all great - my nieces had a blast! Hats off to everyone who volunteered, and to all the groups, candidates and companies that marched in the parade to support our community. I hope my neighbors take note and support these groups in return!
