Hundreds of festive patriots lined the streets of New Suffolk Monday morning for a small-town North Fork tradition that rivals most any other: the New Suffolk Civic Association’s annual Fourth of July parade.
Dozens of parade floats — which included classic automobiles, tractors, wagons and bicycles — marched from the corner of Tuthill and New Suffolk roads and up Main Street to New Suffolk Beach. A community barbecue followed.
Among those participating in the parade were the civic association, New Suffolk Waterfront Fund, Cutchogue Fire Department, New Suffolk School, U.S. Submarine Vets of Long Island and several other community organizations.
