©2020 THE VALLEY BREEZE Living THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER JULY 2-8, 2020 @ Two local long-standing Fourth of July traditions will be taking place this Saturday – both with a twist to keep residents safe. The Arnold Mills Parade Association will celebrate its 94th annual July Fourth Parade and 52nd Road Race in Cumberland with a motorcade throughout the major roads in town and a virtual road race, replacing its traditional parade and race in order to abide by social distancing regulations. In Glocester, the town's popu- lar July 4th Ancients & Horribles Parade will be substituted with a contest that invites residents to deco- rate their front yards in the same style as they would a parade float. "I'm hoping they keep the Ancients & Horribles tradition alive (and) go crazy, go wild, and have a good time," Tanya Botelho, chair- woman of the Ancients & Horribles Parade, told The Valley Breeze. Whether you're participating in the contest or driving by to see how people have decorated their yards, "we hope everyone enjoys what we've come up with," she said. "We've worked hard to scramble to figure out how to still celebrate." While disappointed that they can't host the full Arnold Mills Parade, "at least we're going to have some- thing," said organizer Joyce Hindle- Koutsogiane. "I think that we can't lose sight of what the big picture is: it still is the nation's birthday (and we should) celebrate our country … in whatever way we can." The first recorded Arnold Mills Parade took place on July 4, 1927, led by Rev. Horatio H. Crawford of the Arnold Mills Methodist Church. This year's parade will start at 10 a.m., an hour earlier than usual to allow for more time, Hindle- Koutsogiane said, noting that the route will go further through town this year. "We figured that it might take us a little bit longer." The event route will begin at the Cumberland, Glocester Fourth of July celebrations a go this weekend By MELANIE THIBEAULT Valley Breeze Staff Writer See FOURTH, Page 15 Film Unfiltered TOM BURKE '7500' features strong performance by Gordon-Levitt ★★★ Joseph Gordon-Levitt has had a pretty solid acting career and surpris- ingly he's a very young guy with a long way to go yet. Many people either forget or didn't know that Gordon-Levitt was Tommy from NBC's "3rd Rock from the Sun" back in the late '90s. He's been act- ing steadily since that show ended and if you were to look at his resume on IMDB he's got 84 credits listed there and that's pretty impressive for a guy who hasn't even hit 40 yet. Personally, I found him to be excel- lent in "Looper," "The Walk" and "Snowden." He's a versatile actor who excels at drama but is no slouch doing comedy either. In his newest film, the tense thriller "7500," he stars as an airline pilot who has to deal with his aircraft being hijacked. The film starts with surveillance camera-type footage monitoring the passengers entering and traversing through Berlin International Airport engaging in those things travelers must endure now, security pat downs or being wanded. People randomly walking around hallways or entering or leaving the bathrooms.
