Woodstown 4th of July Parade ~ July 4th

Fourth of July is a special day in Woodstown where the entire town takes part in the Independence Day celebration.  The Annual Woodstown 4th of July Parade has taken place since 1932 and many say it’s straight out of Norman Rockwell painting with spectators lining Main St. waving flags and every home flying the stars and stripes.
