Hockessin put on another spectacular, sizzling Fourth of July Parade yesterday, celebrating 242 years of American independence. Bedecked in patriotic red, white and blue (natch), families and spectators of all ages propped open folding chairs and lined up along Old Lancaster Pike to catch glimpses of the mounted police, fire trucks, colorful floats, vintage cars, school marching bands and, of course, politicians.

Among their numbers were Governor John Carney, Lt. Gov Bethany Hall-Long, US Sen Tom Carper, Congreswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester, State Treasurer Ken Simpler and State Senator Greg Lavelle, along with numerous other elected officials and candidates.  Many made the hop from Smyrna’s parade earlier in the day up to stroll the hot Hockessin half-mile route. 

Parade marchers also included dance school and karate performance groups, local businesses, Cub and Girl Scout troops, the 2018 Miss Delaware, Miss Hockessin and Miss Teen Hockessin pageant winners, and some ghoulish characters from Hockessin’s Haunted House, who must have been pretty darn steamy in their layered costumes and makeup.
