Temperature soared into the high 80s as thousands of sun-soaked people marched the three-plus miles up Dorchester Avenue on Sunday in the 50th anniversary Dot Day Parade. Tens of thousands more lined the parade route and cheered on the floats, bands and a gaggle of politicians on hand for the yearly celebration of all things Dorchester.
