Looking for a good old fashioned hometown parade to celebrate Independence Day? 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. Appropriately, this year’s parade theme is Small Town Americana.
