Watertown’s Independence Day Parade will be held on Saturday, July 3.Entries for the evening parade will start lining up at 5 p.m., with the parade getting underway going east on Main Street at 6 p.m.Continuing the “Stars, Stripes and Squirt Guns” theme of the past two years, there will be a “No Squirt” section in the parade for 2010 due to the political rally that will be held afterward. With many candidates and elected officials participating in the parade, sponsors said they realized that not all would want to take the podium at the political rally soaking wet – as is often the case for those who march or ride floats or in open vehicles during the squirt gun festivities.The Watertown/East Wilson Chamber of Commerce sponsors the annual parade.Rules and Regulations:•    All entries must be received no later than June 30 in order to be included in the parade.
