GLOCESTER – Diehards say they’ve never missed a year – and 2023 was no exception.

The 97th annual Ancients and Horribles parade took place despite, at times, pouring rain and thunder on Tuesday, July 4.

And as always, the weather was not able to dampen spirits at the nearly century-old tradition.
