Thomaston — Crowds lined Main Street in Thomaston for the annual 4th of July parade Friday morning. Clouds lingered, but the rain held off for the parade.

Carnival rides, chicken barbecue, dunk tank, children's activities and more will be held throughout the day behind the Thomaston Business Block.

Fireworks have been postponed until Saturday, July 5, at 9:15 p.m. due to the forecasted rain.
