From The Keene Sentinel Local News for Keene, NH and the Monadnock Region of NH:
"The parade began around 11 a.m., led by "Mr. Pickle" himself in a army green jeep. He was decked out in his familiar green tuxedo suit, green hat, and even a green handkerchief to wipe his brow under the hot afternoon sun.
Henry A.L. Parkhurst of Winchester has been "Mr. Pickle" from the beginning and has watched the changes over the last seven years.
"There is much more community spirit (this year) and pulling together," he said."
