Edgartown has never had a shortage of patriotism when it comes to the town’s annual Fourth of July parade. The crowds and floats are as sure as flags and fireworks.

What the town really needs this year are some convertibles.

Lead parade organizer Joseph E. Sollitto Jr. is issuing a plea for those with a convertible to spare for a day to donate their vehicle to the town’s annual parade. The convertibles are used to convey the three town selectmen and, especially, veterans who are unable to march the parade route.

Those willing to have their car participate in the parade can contact the selectmen’s office at 508-627-6180.
