2014 Milford, NH Labor Day Parade

In New Hampshire, the political season starts to heat up with the annual Milford Labor Day Parade. The parade route has the perfect optics for campaign advertisements with a gazebo placed in the middle of an oval in the downtown district.
Our Governor, State Senator and Congressman are all up for re-election and all were in the attendance. It was a brutally hot day, but fun to watch
