Rainy skies turned to sunny skies enabling the Bellmore Little League to hold its annual spring parade on Saturday, April 26, from the Kennedy High School field to the Bruce Gary Memorial Field.
Bellmore Little League dodged the rain to parade along a Bellmore street from a Kennedy field to Bruce Gary Memorial Field. County Legislator Dave Denenberg marched with the teams.
This is the first year the parade has been held at this location. For years the league started its season with a parade starting at Oak Street and marching down Bedford Avenue all the way to Bruce Gary Memorial Field. But league President Joe Maniscalco said the length of the route made it difficult for parents to return to their cars after the opening game because of the great distance involved back to Oak Street.
State Assemblyman Dave McDonough joined Legislator Dave Denenberg to pose with the champion Bellmore Heat.
