Dennison Field Day Parade

Here’s a picture of the September 15, 1923 parade through downtown Framingham, which kicked off the third annual Dennison Employee Field Day. After the parade, 3 special trains took nearly 5000 employees to Norumbega Park for a day of fun. In this photo, you can see the St George Theatre, which had just opened in April of 1921.

There’s an upright with no marquee. You can see people on the roof, watching. The parade route was 2 miles long, ending in Irving Square where the Selectmen and Dennison executives sat in a reviewing stand. It was reported that 25,000 people lined the parade route.
