Annual Independence Parade Draws Huge Crowd to Bridge Street

Oswego, NY – A large crowd lined Bridge Street on Sunday afternoon to take in the 2013 edition of Oswego’s Independence Celebration Parade.

Crowds on both sides of the river were treated to a variety of music, classic cars and many other patriotic floats. Leading the way was the Oswego High School Marching Buccaneers.


  1. MY favorite were those Mummers! WOW, what fabulous costumes, and fun performers who interacted with the parade viewers!!!
    This was a great parade except I had hoped more of the advertisers woulda done a bit more with their parade entry than just paste a sign on their car or truck.

    WHEN did we stop making the parade more than a venue for ads than an acknowledgement of our Independence?

    Just two cents. I know when I did floats for both the Library and the Oswego Players, we took a bit more time with it than what was in the ‘show’ yesterday. Maybe the fire departments could be first/police, too, and then the floats, and then ads at the end for those too hot to stay?

  2. Great job as always Steve. Thanks. Those of us in the parade never get to see the parade unless people like you write stories like this.
