Mini Boom Box Parade

The Child and Family Development Resource Center (CFDRC) hosted its annual Mini Boom Box Parade on July 2. Adorned in patriotic clothing and costumes, approximately 60 children who are enrolled at the CFDRC and their families marched across campus for the “kid version” of Willimantic’s Boom Box Parade, the town’s annual Fourth of July celebration.

“We started the Mini Boom Box Parade around Eastern’s campus as an effort to connect the children with the University community,” said Niloufar Rezai, director of the CFDRC. “Children feel a sense of pride as they parade through campus, greeted by the community.”
