Tiverton celebrates with ‘biggest’ parade
By land and water they came for Tiverton Days
TIVERTON — Organizers kept an eye to the weather as last weekend's three-day Tiverton Days celebration approached. With rain threatening, “A decision on the parade will not be made until Saturday morning," said Linda Larson, one of the organizers.
But Friday night was an auspicious start as the weather held. The celebration kicked off with a pass-by of boats, illuminated and decorated for the occasion, off Grinnell's Beach after sunset, said Phyllis Ibbotson, Tiverton Yacht Club commodore, who led the small fleet.
