Vice President Joe Biden didn’t need a Cadillac convertible or fancy float to draw attention of parade goers at yesterday’s 4th of July Parade in Hockessin. Several bystanders who were seemingly quite comfortable in their lawn chairs leaped to their feet to catch a better glimpse, a hug, even selfies with the Vice President, who walked the length of the parade route down Old Lancaster Pike. This was one of the most well-attended parades in recent memory, with some 2,500 people who waved to the high school marching bands, fire trucks, veterans, Scout troops, karate clubs and pageant queens as they traveled the parade route.

Kids quickly snatched up all the tossed candy. But Hockessin’s Harvest Market handed out 2,000 organic apples, while a high school robotics group launched rubber balls into the air. One of the most dramatic floats was the Hockessin Haunted House, with flying bats and squirrels, vampires, werewolves, and Psycho’s “Mother” in her rocking chair.

Parade planners have indicated that the 2016 4th of July Parade may be Hockessin’s last, as the town has been unable to find someone to take over planning from Kenny Wynn who announced his retirement last year after a 10-year run at the helm.
