Just think of it as a two-week time-delay fuse.

The parade was cancelled, the fireworks fizzled, but next Sunday, June 3, they'll give it another try.

The town's annual Veterans’ Parade was rained out last Sunday, but organizers announced this week that Elmo, Winnie the Pooh, and Shrek will march along with fire trucks, marching bands, clowns, and the other staples of a small town parade. The parade will start near the junction of Routes 16 and 9 and end at Wellesley Square and will happen from 1 to 3 p.m.

Also rescheduled because of rain, the annual fireworks display – which was billed this year as the “biggest ever” -— will be launched at dusk from Hunnewell field.
