Geo. W. Cutting & Sons general store in the Town Square was decorated with bunting for the June 17, 1913, parade. Marian Case's "Hillcrest Boys" formed a fife-and-drum corps that marched in the parade. This float, sponsored by a local farm, reads "These kids raised on goats milk." Brodrick's store in Kendal Green entered this "Living Trade Marks" float. Geo. Brodrick (left) is Deviled Ham.

Hook & Hastings organ factory took second place with this two-part float; organist and keyboard in front, organ in back. Weston suffragettes entered a "Votes for Women" float. Ticket to the June 1913 Bicentennial pageant The historical pageant was held on June 16 at the estate of Robert Winsor. Dramatic dancers played parts like Past, Present, and Future. In the first two scenes, which take place in the year 1000, Indians make camp and a young brave acts out a story. The Indians are interrupted by a loud holler from the shore, where Norsemen are disembarking from their ship. The Norsemen are welcomed, and the two groups eat together and exhibit their skills. The motif for the Bicentennial was Norumbega Tower, which commemorated the (apocryphal) settlement of "Norsemen" (Vikings) in Watertown and Weston in the year 1000. Flags and medals were produced as souvenirs of this major community celebration.
