Needham residents and officials will honor astronaut Sunita Williams Oct. 27 with a parade.

The celebration will include the Needham High School Marching Band, the Pollard Treble Choir, the Highland Glee Club, Needham Girl and Boy Scout troops, as well as the Fire and Police Departments' honor guards.

Williams will lead the parade, which will start at the Fire Station on Chestnut Street and end at Town Hall. State Senator Scott Brown and State Representative Lida Harkins are both expected to attend.
